I really can't believe that Easter is upon us already, it only seems days ago since it was the build up to Christmas, and we have saved a lot of dog's lives in those 4 months.
SHAK couldn't do what we do without funds, and the support of people who give up a lot of their time and effort to help us raise those funds. This weekend though, is a big one for us and thank you to the Fundraising Team and Derek and Sandra for giving up their Easter to help us, but more importantly the SHAK Dogs.
Saturday see's the first SHAK Tombola of 2010, as Carol and her team head to Jollyes at Westerhope. It's top secret, but I hear a rumour that all the prizes are Easter themed so well worth a visit and a £1. Be great to make some new SHAK friends, and also for the Fundraising team to meet some familiar faces.
Sunday and Monday (Monday as its a Bank Holiday) see's "Pebbles" down at Seaton Sluice open their doors for the usual quality Coffee's, Tea's and Soup's, and obviously Sandra's home made scones! However, always wanting to raise even more funds, Derek has once again been a busy bee this week.
After his fabulous hand painted garden ornaments (there will be some available Sunday and Monday too) Derek has excelled himself by creating some wonderful "Faberge" type SHAK hand painted eggs. Doggy cartoons and local scenes such as Delaval Hall are all displayed so well, its a shame that the work can't be displayed for ever.
Derek has kindly donated all the eggs to raise funds for SHAK, and you can buy them on Sunday and Monday (if there are any left!) by popping into the caravans on the sea front at Seaton Sluice. Remember he is open 7.30 - 5, look at for the black SHAK flags, and that your furry friends are more than welcome.
Below and above are some pictures of these beautiful eggs.....
