AFG STALL BRECKLAND COMPASSIONATE LIVING FAIR THETFORD TOWN HALL 03.12.2016
Another great vegan awareness fair organized by Melissa who did a great job for this, the first vegan fair she has set up. We had a great space for our stall in one of the 2 halls inside the building.
Again so nice to see such a great variety of cruelty free/animal rights campaign stalls and to be in the company of so many like minded people.
Our merchandise and tombola were very popular and we received a lot of very generous donations in our collection pots.
AFG AWARENESS/COLLECTION DAYS ROYS WROXHAM 08 AND 09.12.2016
We had mild dry weather and a great space outside and under the cover of Roys due to the great support of the management.
We had overwhelming support from the public with many people who were visiting from other parts of the country for the Winter break at this very popular tourist location. Needless to say our beautiful accompanying greyhounds received lots of attention and admiration.
We were also able to promote and sell several calendars and packs of our exclusive Christmas cards.
AFG CHARITY STALL WITH STREET COLLECTION and AWARENESS DAY HAYMARKET, NORWICH 10.12.2016
We were lucky enough to have the charity stall and a street collection permit today. A bit drizzly on and off later in the afternoon but still mild.
Our beautiful hounds wore their awareness macs so not only were they kept snug but also helped to raise more campaign awareness with the slogans on the macs. Being close to Christmas the City was very busy and our stall had lots of visitors throughout the day, not only did we receive very many generous money donations but sold lots of our hound knitwear and our other merchandise but also some very good quality bric-a-brac and Christmas items which had been generously donated to us to sell.
Hundreds of leaflets were distributed today and with many visitors to Norwich from other parts of the country this enabled us to spread our campaign awareness to an even broader audience.
AFG AWARENESS DAY and COLLECTION TESCO, STALHAM, NORFOLK 13.12.2016
Luckily for the late time in the year we still had a very mild dry day for our event with a great space outside the store to accommodate us with the shelter and our beautiful greyhounds.
We are always well supported by the locals at this store as they all look forward to seeing us and hearing of the updates of the campaign as we only have one annual event here in December.
We were also able to promote and sell our calendars and Christmas cards which were very popular and later in the week we received some orders for our sighthound jumpers and head and neck gear. So the amazing ladies who hand knit these beautiful items for us, continued to be kept busy crafting to meet the demand of even more orders.
AFG MONTHLY CHARITY STALL HAYMARKET NORWICH 17.12.2016
We have been so very lucky this Autumn to have had such dry mild weather for all our awareness events, so our beautiful hounds could accompany us too. We have to take so many beds, blankets jumpers coats etc as our main priority is to keep them all comfortable during the day.
They never miss out on fuss and cuddles and it is good for people to learn what gentle friendly hounds they are, this helps when people may consider fostering or adopting greyhounds and lurchers.
Over the years we have met some wonderful people at such events who have become great foster carers and adopters for AfG.
Again our hound knitwear was much in demand with some people buying the hats, scarves,neck bands snoods and jumpers not only for their own hounds but to give as doggy Christmas presents for hounds of friends and family.
How lovely that several hounds won’t miss out on special Christmas gifts.
AFG AWARENESS DAY and COLLECTION JOLLYES PET SUPERSTORE NORWICH 23.12 2016
Our last event for 2016.
We are always made so very welcome here with our hounds with great support from the management and staff and always have a great space outside to accommodate the awareness station. Not only do we receive generous support from Jollyes customers but with this being such a popular and busy shopping estate with a variety of shops we meet and are well supported by customers from the other shops.
Just a morning event today as it started to turn chilly by mid day, but we had a very successful morning and a great end to what has been another amazing year of awareness and fundraising.
