Harvey, Angel and Dave

Here we are, January again and time for New Year resolutions.   I’ve heard talk of dieting, stopping bad habits (I hope that doesn’t apply to me hoarding things) and new health plans.   One of our supporters is already keeping fit for a very special reason.   Dave Carr is training for the London Marathon in April to raise money for SESAW.   Dave hopes to complete the 26.2 miles in 4 hours, as he did in Edinburgh four years ago.   You can read more and donate on Dave’s fundraising page here.

Mayor's Parlour

Mayor’s Parlour

Looking back at 2014 we thank everyone who supported SESAW, including those who braved miserable weather to help raise £1805 at our Christmas Fair and Grand Raffle.   An unusual event took place when a party of SESAW Volunteers was treated to a tour of the Mayor’s Parlour in Ipswich (photo courtesy of the Mayor of Ipswich Facebook Page).  In October, the lovely Bubbles arrived with her five puppies – all pups have now gone to their new homes, and Bubbles herself will soon be off as well. On a sadder note Boff, our resident tailless tabby who often greeted visitors, died in November.   A gentleman among cats, Boff was respected by all, including us canines, and will be greatly missed.

I’ve just been out with lovely Debbie who responded to my plea for new helpers a few months ago, but we still need dog walkers and animal carers.   Please leave a message if you can spare one morning a week, or would like to help with fundraising.   We have many animals awaiting new homes including a deaf dog named Angel and Harvey the whippet, her constant companion (pictured above).   Next time I’ll tell you more about the animals but now I’ve run out of time.    If this article is late, the Editor will not be very pleased with me, Kenny (the Boss) Chihuahua!
