The volunteers are wilting and the dogs have flopped down in the shade as I write this in the middle of a July heatwave. Luckily it was cooler a few weeks ago when the fundraisers held a sale at Newton Green. Thank you to everyone who helped to raise over £840 plus a generous amount from an anonymous donor.
Some of our ladies helped register runners at the Nayland 10K which raises money for local charities including SESAW. Congratulations to Luke and his team for another enjoyable day with a great atmosphere. I felt most honoured when the girls returned with a spare 1K medal, although Mum says it was NOT named after me.
If you enjoy a Rummage Sale, make sure you visit SESAW during August. We are clearing out stock which has piled up over the last two years. The marquees will be full of bargains for everyone, from pictures to pottery, books to bric a brac, furniture to flowers, DIY to DVDs. Roll up 10am – 3pm, any Saturday or Sunday in August. Arrive early if you wish to view the animals, the rehoming side closes at 1pm.
Another date for your diary is Saturday 10th September when we will be holding a £1 Sale at the Stevenson Centre, Stevenson Approach, Gt. Cornard, CO10 0WD. Doors open at 11am, these sales are always popular so don’t miss it!
Like many rescues, we are full to overflowing with cats, dogs and rabbits and more waiting to come in. One example is Suzanne, a black and white cat approximately ten years old, found in a distressed condition sitting in the gutter by the side of a busy road. She loves a fuss, has a healthy appetite and is probably best suited as an indoor pet in an adult household.
If you are looking for a new pet to share your home, we are still open 10am to 1pm, Friday to Sunday during the Summer but check first to avoid disappointment.
I’m far from disappointed with my 1K medal which I still think was made especially for me, Kenny (the Boss) Chihuahua.
