Dogs Trust Loughborough appeals for donations to make fun day “paw-fect”
Dogs Trust Loughborough is hoping dog-loving locals have spare goodies and gifts to donate for their Summer Fun Day raffle and tombola.
The Fun Day, on Sunday 29 July, is the rehoming centre’s main fundraising event of the year and the raffle and tombola are always popular, helping raise thousands of pounds for Dogs Trust Loughborough.
Ella Tonge, Supporter Relations Officer and organiser of the annual event, says:
“We would love it if with just a couple of weeks to go people could check out their cupboards and see if there’s anything they could donate.
“For the raffle and tombola it is a case of the more varied the better! New toys for children and toiletry sets for adults always go down well, as do things that most of us love such as chocolates and wine. We would also love businesses to donate experiences such as theatre tickets and spa days.”
The Summer Fun Day is at Turnpost Farm, East Road, Wymeswold, Loughborough, LE12 6ST, 10.30am-4pm on Sunday 29 July. There will be fun and games for all the family and four-legged friends including fun dog show competitions, doggy games, a kids zone including fun fair, and stalls full of delights for canine companions and two-legged friends. If you are able to make a donation please pop into Dogs Trust Loughborough or call Ella on 01509 882966.
