Eavesdropping can be very confusing. I thought the volunteers were celebrating having perfect eyesight when they were talking about seeing in 20 20 last month. Mum explained this year marks the start of a new decade which inspires many resolutions like getting fit – as she eyed my bulging tummy!
If you want to shed those extra festive pounds don’t forget the Nayland 10K takes place on 5th July. SESAW is one of the beneficiaries of this family friendly day and dogs are welcome as shown in the photo taken by Brian Sanders. The pooch and his family are proudly wearing the wood medals specially designed for last year’s entrants. The website will be launched soon for anyone wishing to register at: https://www.nayland10k.co.uk/
Thank you to some of our supporters who are already fit. A local group of football playing friends raised £80 which will help keep our kennels warm this winter. Thank you also to Betty’s Stitchers and Knitters and other ladies for making blankets for me and my friends. As you can see in the photo, we couldn’t wait to snuggle into the cosy covers. Trust one of the cats to join in.
We welcomed Elaine, the Community Champion from Asda in Colchester recently when she brought us a big cheque. The Store’s Green Token Scheme raised £500 which will help pay for heating all the dog and cat kennels through the winter. The mother and daughter Staffies in the photo will be among the animals keeping nice and warm whilst they wait for a new home together.
More thanks to Monica, Tam and Denise for checking lots of jigsaws ready for our sales. Which reminds me, we are holding another £1 Sale on 14th March at Newton Village Hall, C10 0QS. Lots of bargains in all departments, door opens at 11am.
