Santa's Helpers And Thank You.....

I know this is short notice, but Christmas has crept upon us and with a fund raising diary that is chocker this weekend really is the only time we can fit in a couple of Santa's Helpers days.

You may remember last year was the first year we opened the doors to SHAK HQ for people to drop off food, bedding, toys and cash donations,and it was an enormous success.

So this year we have decided to repeat the event but spreading it over two days, this Friday (8th December) from 10am till 2pm and Saturday (9th December) from 10am till 4pm.

This event is a great opportunity for some of our fund raising team to meet the very special people who support our work, but also a great chance for you to pass on your donations personally. Unfortunately due to a really busy diary we are unable to come and collect any much appreciated donations this time of year.

Thank you so much in advance and we hope to see you on wither Friday or Saturday.

I'd also like to say a very big thank you to everyone involved in the SHAK Boutique event over the last couple of weeks, especially Kerry and Natasha for getting the whole event off the ground and Gordon for being of friendly doggy face in the public domain!

Of course the event wouldn't have been a success without your support and I'm delighted to say with money still coming in we have surpassed all expectations and records! Currently the total stands at around £3,500 which is simply unbelievable. Thank you all so much for helping us raise a mind blowing amount.

I'd also like to say a thank you to the fundraising girls who raised a fantastic amount at Alnwick Christmas Market last weekend, but particularly to my daughter Neve who gave up her Saturday to help. At 11 she has seen so much in the world of rescue and Saturday she helped in a way she could. I'm so proud of her.

It was also great to see some of the dogs we have helped get into loving homes, you will all remember Lilly and I think you'll agree she is looking fantastic. Whilst Fagan is certainly enjoying an extended stay with Sheena and Roger.  Thank you all so much.

And her reward!

The legend that is Fagan.
