Today the fundraisers were out in force at our Book and Cake sale at Club Canin in Carcassonne. Logistics for this started weeks ago when posters were made, lists were written and notices placed in all of the online sites, so it was nice to see it all come together at last.
One of the most popular donations to the SPA is books and we had hundreds of both French and English books. Our cake stall was magnificent, once again thanks to Anna and other volunteers who had all been very busy. We had a super ‘guess the weight of the cake’ competition which was won by Lisa, one of our fosterers. The bric a brac stand was very popular as was the plant stall. Jan was there with her fabulous painted tiles as was Belinda with her greeting cards.
The fundraising events are not only useful for raising monies but also for raising awareness of the SPA. They are also an excellent opportunity for people to come along and say hello, talk about their dogs or bring along their ex SPA dog to show us how well they are doing. We love seeing ex SPA dogs at these events and today we saw Rookie, Blanca, Amedeus, Doggy, Othello and Desi, on top of that my doggy also joined in the fun as Benedictes two!
The amount raised was a whopping 280 euros which was fantastic considering that we seem to have ended up with more books than we started with!
So once again a huge thank you to everyone who came along to help or donated, you can rest assured your donations will go a long way to help make life a little bit easier for the animals in our care!
