A quick blog tonight as we are all exhausted from a fun day at Chateau Miaou. It was an early-ish start, as there were books to put on display as well as clothes to hang up, bric-a-brac to put out and sausages to cook. Yes, it was a real team effort, and the first customers arrived before the official opening time of 11H00.
From then till 15H00 there was a steady stream of people arriving, some with dogs, some with kids, and some just to eat a sausage baguette in the sun with a cup of tea or coffee or in some cases (whistles innocently) a small glass of wine or beer.
Many many thanks to our hosts Sharon and Willie, plus everyone who ran the stalls: Sabine and Karen, Chrissie and Janice, Jane and Moira. Plus of course Mister Saucisse, who did everyone proud with his magnificent bangers. We haven’t added up all the small change yet, but the event raised over €600, which is a fabulous total. There were also many donations in the form of items for the refuge; cat transport cases and a scratching post, dog crates, blankets etc. So no one forgot the reason why we were all there; to help improve the lives of the animals at the ScPA..
Thanks to everyone who came along, and if you missed out on today’s fun, don’t worry, we are already planning our next event for later this summer!
