My goodness, what a lovely open day they had last month. Lots of people came to see the animals awaiting new homes, browse the games and stalls or show off their pets in the Fun Dog Show. Darrell from Gladwell & Son came to help dispense the rosettes his company had kindly sponsored and pupils from Bentley and Copdock Primary Schools who won the art competition came to collect their prizes.
They were amazed to find £4,650 was raised, thank you to everyone who helped make the day such a success. The icing on the cake is that several dogs were rehomed as a result of the event which celebrated 25 years of animal rescue at Leavenheath.
The fundraisers are busy preparing for a £1 sale in Hadleigh next month and their Christmas Fair in November, but first they are holding a Barking Basement weekend sale at the sanctuary. There will be everything from curtains to cameras, bags to books, toys to trousers so bag a bargain, 10am-1pm on Saturday and Sunday 23rd September and Monday 24th September.
