I just want to say a massive THANK YOU to everyone that got our year as Sainsbury's Alnwick Charity Of The Year off to an incredible start this weekend. The three day bag pack extravaganza took some organising, but wow..... it was well worth it.
The total for the whole weekend was..... drumroll..... £2,511.15 Quite simply amazing.
I'd like to thank all the customers and staff at Sainsbury's who supported the event, we met some wonderful and generous people, also all the volunteers who packed bags or helped with the dogs, and to all the SHAK dogs who attended and did themselves and us proud!!!
A special mention for Joan who lost many a night sleep arranging it, and gave up 3 full days of her life for the event, it really is greatly appreciated!
On a personal note, I had a great day there on Sunday, as did the 6 SHAK dogs I brought down. Here's their reward afterwards.....
