Me & one of my fab little elves will be there by 10am with the trophies in tow! We'll fill in wherever the gaps are
Yey! I have just the job for you! Barks & Spencers stall? Selling our dog beds, coats, leads & collars etc. Hopefully we've have enough peeps on the stall to make sure everyone gets a break. Michele has put her hand up for this too
Vince and I said we would be there to help in the kitchens. What time would you like us to get there?
Heya Zoe! We have a few vols from Victoria Park, and Babs in the kitchen, and Ricki and Rhys are taking turns on the barbeque, so we're wondering whether you would mind helping on the kiddies activities - bouncy, facepainting and balloon modelling? It will just be taking the money lol, you don't need to actually do the facepainting! If that's OK with you and Vince it would be a great help!
Happy to help on teas, coffees, cakes etc. and rotate anywhere needed. Besides baking some cakes do you need coffee, tea, milk and sugar? I'll hopefully get there by 10:00. Going to try and have a couple of quick early walks . Rhian will also come along to help. Bx
Kitchen it is! Ta Babs! The Friends of Victoria Park Team have offered to help in the kitchen too
I can be there from 10.30 but need to leave at 2.30 if that's ok. Happy to go anywhere, float, whatever. Will have a small helper in tow so if we could do something that she can help me with, that would be great.
Looking forward to it.
Perfect Karen! Thanks so much We still need a good saleswoman on the raffle stall if you fancy it? The Raffle Table will be with the Staffie information stall, so you'll be rubbing shoulders with Maria & Sarah from CDH, Steve and our lovely new dog warden, Katie!
I'm gutted we can't make it, I forgot it's Marks birthday haha going for a meal! Enjoy all I hope lots of pounds are made for the dogs..We will be coming to the shows next year even if I have to cancel birthdays! Good luck all and have fun x
As a new member, I attended my first fundraising event by the Friends.
I was bowled over by the support, from the very start of the day, setting up all the tables and areas, to the end of the day, putting the goods (far less goods) back in the van.
It was so organised.
I met some lovely Friends, putting faces to names I may see in the walker book.
To think that the army of volunteers behind this whole event give up so much of their time for the dogs in Cardiff dogs home, is unbelievable and wonderful, as those dogs don't get to voice their opinions (other than showing their love in a wag of the tail). I was truly humbled by the experience.
Watching Susie be everywhere and all the other purple hoodie wonders take action was amazing.
So many people just couldn't stop putting their hands in their pockets for the dogs and I know Talia and Belinda enjoyed their outing.
So, to sum up, from a newbies point of view, it went amazingly well.
Cracking cracking day It was just brilliant, everyone did so well and worked their socks off! Lovely to catch up with everyone and just fab to see so many of our newer vols just getting stuck in and going with the flow. Well done everyone x
Hello all, We paid a flying visit with Rocky (Patch) this afternoon and it looked to be going brilliantly and we picked up a few lovely little items as well. Only sorry we couldn't have stuck around for longer, but it was good to meet some of the volunteers who worked with (Patch) at the Home. I think he enjoyed meeting up with you again and letting everyone know he was there very vocally Well done all!
