As well as running her own grooming parlour, Wagsters Grooming, Jenni also works as a groomer in local pet shop Creatures Great and Small, and Keith, the owner of the shop, had agreed to let her take over the shop for the day and fill up any extra space with fund raising things. Well done, Keith, the world needs more bosses like that!
There was a tombola with brilliant prizes, a table with interesting bric-a-brack, delicious home made cakes for sale, demonstrations from pet food companies James Wellbeloved and Royal Canin, lucky dip, guess-how-many-treats-are-in-the jar competition, sale of home made dog treats, a huge dressed-up dog, and as the star attraction, local reptile breeder Ann had brought a selection of reptiles and furry animals.
We raised £600 in total, so well done to everybody involved, and particularly to Jenni for organising it all and making it happening. A lot of hard work went into the organisation, and Cancer Research was grateful for the contribution.
After a long day full of smiles and laughter, some of us ended the day in a local pub for a meal and a drink to celebrate a job well done.
There’s a slideshow with additional pictures from the day and from the evening here.
