Dogs Trust Evesham gearing up for annual fun day

There’s waggy tails and lotsa licks at Dogs Trust Evesham as staff gear up for their annual fun day which is taking place this Sunday (24th June).

Taking place at the Ragley Hall in Alcester from 11.00am to 4.00pm, this fun-filled day is great for the whole family. With less than a week to go, the rehoming centre is pulling out all the stops to make the event bigger and better than ever.

The charity is still gratefully accepting generous donations of prizes for the raffle which will help raise vital funds, such as bottles of wine, boxes of chocolates, any doggy items including treats, toys, collars and leads, unwanted gifts and beauty and toiletry sets.

Shauna Stedman, Supporter Relations Officer at Dogs Trust Evesham, said:

“Our fun day is a fantastic opportunity to meet local dog lovers and raise pounds for the homeless hounds in our care. There are all sorts of exciting activities planned throughout the day so please come along and support Dogs Trust Evesham, we can promise you a really fun day out for all the family!

“The prize raffle plays a huge role in the day. We’re so grateful for those who have donated wonderful goods already - but if you’d like to donate anything that we could put to use, we’d be so grateful as the more prizes we have, the more money we can raise for our wonderful dogs.

“Previous years have seen over 4,000 people attend and we’re expecting the same if not more visitors this year as we return to Ragley Hall, so it’s a great opportunity to join in the fun with two and four-legged friends!”

Highlights of the day include have-a-go agility, kids games, a raffle, tombola, stallholders and games for all the family including those of the four-legged variety who may even be able to win their very own rosette in the fun dog show. The event will host a rehoming centre parade to highlight a few of the current residents at Dogs Trust Evesham looking for their special someone. There will also be a variety of Dogs Trust merchandise available to buy on the day and delicious refreshments to enjoy.

The entrance fee is £5 per person and free for under 5s and dogs. There will be free parking at the event.

For those who would like to donate items for the raffle and tombola, please drop prizes into the Evesham rehoming centre situated at 89 Pitchers Hill, Wickhamford, Evesham, WR11 7RT.
