We had a stall at the Dogs Trust‘s Family Fun Day again last Sunday. This is one of our favourite events as there are usually at least as many dogs as humans and they just all have such a great time.
It is always a very successful event for the Dogs Trust too and it’s just amazing to see all these people come out in support of the dogs.
We had a very successful stall and took just under £400. Our teddy bear tombola and dog treat trials were very popular as usual. Babs, who came all the way from Somerset to help on the day, brought her very popular hand made dog duvets as well, which sold like hotcakes. Mike brought his exceptionally cute little canine assistant Haggis, who certainly helped get people to our stall.
Below are some photos for those of you who couldn’t be there with us
As we are getting busier every year with fundraising events, our own and stalls at other events, we really needed to find some new members willing and able to take on some of the organisational responsibilities and I am very happy to say that two of the newer members of our group have stepped up to the challenge.
We now have a joint coordinator who is working alongside myself to organise events and stalls. Selma Rauf has been a supporter of Animals Asia for many years and is already working on two events to take place later in the year.
Elle Haring has taken on a lot of the admin and is now updating our events page on the website and Facebook page, and is also working on another event so watch this space! 🙂
Other key members of our group are Yvonne Paul, Annie Walker, Mariachiara Butt, Hilary Golding, Amanda Lynch, Maja Kominko (also new and working on getting more talks for us in London), Ness Tee, Lucy Williams and Liz Floyd – in no particular order.
We are always happy to welcome new members, whether you have a lot of spare time, or only the odd day or couple of hours. We always need people to man stalls, make items for us to sell on stalls, organise events or help in any way you can think of.
You can contact us via our contacts page here or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com

Wishing you all a very happy New Year and most of all, may this be a year for the animals. More rescues, more awareness and less suffering!
Let us all do what we can, every little really does help, so never think there is nothing you can do when you’re overwhelmed by all the suffering you see. Together we can make a huge difference! UNTIL THE CRUELTY ENDS!
