Canines calling for Christmassy donations
Staff and four-legged residents at Dogs Trust Evesham are hoping that generous members of the public and local businesses will help to make this year’s forthcoming Christmas Fair a success by donating prizes for the raffle.
The annual Christmas Fair is taking place at the Evesham rehoming centre in Wickhamford from 12pm-4pm on Saturday 24th November, and staff are appealing for donations for the tombola and raffle which will help raise thousands of pounds for cute canines every year.
At least 80 dogs will spend Christmas Day at the centre and every penny raised at the festive fair will go towards looking after the dogs until they find their forever homes.
Prizes have previously included bottles of wine, boxes of chocolates, gift sets, vouchers, good-as-new items for dogs and much more.
Shauna Stedman, Supporter Relations Officer at Dogs Trust Evesham, said:
“Our Christmas Fair is one of our key fundraising events of the year and every penny raised makes sure we can give our dogs everything they need throughout the year, not just at Christmas, whilst they wait for their forever homes.
“Our raffle and tombola are our most popular stalls so we’d be so grateful for any donations that will help us raise as much money as possible. We are hoping that there are kind-hearted dog lovers out there who can donate prizes and help us raise much-needed pounds for hounds this Christmas.”
Visitors to the fair will have the opportunity to indulge their two-legged and four-legged friends with crafts and gifts on sale, a Doggie Tombola, a Grand Raffle, Santa Paws’ grotto where children and dogs can meet the man of the season himself and seasonal refreshments.
If you are able to help, please drop off any donations to Dogs Trust Evesham, 89 Pitchers Hill, Wickhamford, Evesham, WR11 7RT by 20th November. For more information please call Shauna Stedman on 01386 835 842.
