Kenny’s June News

Please share this!

My old tummy trouble flared up last month so Ollie stepped in to write our news. He also provided the best laugh I’ve had in ages when Mum caught him trying to converse with a toy parrot! Seeing the superior ‘cat who walks by himself’ failing to get a response from a stuffed toy cheered me up no end! Next time he mocks my canine intelligence I’ll call him Pretty Ollie!

Although we are not holding any fundraising events, our trusty volunteers are a determined bunch. Some attend sales and markets like the local Markets in Langham Community Centre, Clare Town Hall and the Christopher Centre, Gainsborough Street, Sudbury.

Others sell online, at their garden gates or locally, like Lorraine who raised £274 with a ‘Pop Up Shop’outside Millins Coffee Shop in Tiptree and Jeanette who ran a Tombola outside Roys in Sudbury. A big thank to both our champion fundraisers and to the respective businesses for providing the venues.

We are also grateful to have received £250 from the Polstead Community Shop and £150 from the Assington Happysounds Community Choir. Thank you to both these organisations, members and customers for their generous donations.

It feels as if life is getting back to normal with the return of the Nayland 10K Run on Sunday 11th July. SESAW is one of the charities to benefit from this excellent event. More details at We are also very grateful to have received a surprise delivery of cat food from Morrisons’ Hadleigh store recently.

Over the last year the demand for pets has increased dramatically and theft is rife. Dogs have been taken, not only from owners and walkers whilst outdoors but from kennels and gardens in broad daylight. Please stay vigilant at all times to keep your beloved companions safe and avoid the heartbreak of a missing pet.

It’s time to accompany Mum on her evening rounds before nightfall then it’s a cosy bed by the fire for me, Kenny (the Boss) Chihuahua.
