STREET COLLECTION/AWARENESS DAY HAYMARKET and GENTLEMANS WALK, NORWICH 03.10.2015
Another fantastic day in the Centre of Norwich, due to amazing weather for this late in the year. We were kept so very busy with such interest and support from the public with very many generous donations made.

The hounds started off wearing their jumpers but by early afternoon were wearing their AfG ‘Cool Houndz’ wet coats. Who would have thought it for the beginning of October. Of course, as usual the hounds received lashings of attention throughout the day, we are so proud of our beautiful rescued hounds as they are such fantastic ambassadors for promoting the gentleness and beauty of this wonderful breed.

AFG MONTHLY STALL AT CHARITY STALL, HAYMARKET, NORWICH 10.10.2015
Another very busy day on our popular charity stall in the heart of the City. As long as we have dry, mild weather we are able to take a couple of our beautiful hounds along with us, who are very well accommodated in a snug corner of the stall.

It is due to receiving some great quality donated items from supporters that we always have such great bargains for people to buy. Usually our stalls are held her on a Saturday, but very occasionally, we may hold one on a Sunday or a Thursday in Spring and Summer.

AFG STALL AT SPROWSTON CAR BOOT SITE, NORWICH 25.10.2015
Another great morning for our stall at another very popular car boot sale which is held on the Sprowston Park and Ride site on a lovely clean hard standing surface.

This is a ‘Late start’ sale open to the public from 10 am on Sundays, usually between April and end of October. It is great to be able to set up the stall before the public arrive. There are always a wide variety of stalls to browse around and a good area to walk the hounds who accompany us on our stall.
