AFG STALL AT IPSWICH VEGAN FAIR, CORN HALL, IPSWICH, SUFFOLK 08.10.2016

Another fantastic Vegan fair organised by Shena and friends from Pudz Animal Sanctuary, Lincolnshire.

They are organizing several Vegan events across the country now, they do a great job, especially having to look after so many rescued animals too.They support many of the local rescues and animal rights campaigns at their events.

We had a great space for our stall and met various people, some who knew of AfG and some who have not, so even more awareness raised.

It was lovely to see so many stalls promoting a cruelty free living and raising awareness of so many animal welfare/rights issues, such a great day to spend among so many like-minded people.

 

AFG STALL AT PENNISTONE TABLE TOP SALE , Nr SHEFFIELD 09.10.2016

Rosemary and her mum organized another great stall at this event which is growing in popularity with local businesses and other charities.

Rosemary and her mum receive donations for the tombola prizes as well as purchasing items themselves.

Also AfG merchandise is sold on the stall along with campaign information leaflets and collection pots. Visitors are very supportive of the stall.

 

AFG FUNDRAISING/AWARENESS WEEKEND PETS AT HOME, SPROWSTON, NORWICH 22&23.10.2016

We had a lovely bright dry weekend for the last of our 4 weekends at the store for this year.

Even with building work being undertaken on the trading estate (luckily not over this weekend) we still had plenty of room to accommodate us with our hounds.

We had a real meet and greet weekend with adopted AfG greyhound Happy paying us a visit with his little housemate Staffy cross Lilo and our little foster greyhound pup Jack joined us on Sunday and enjoyed things so much, he slept for nearly one hour curled up with the other hounds.

 

AFG CHARITY STALL HAYMARKET, NORWICH 28.10.16

A lovely Autumn day for our stall before the clocks change and the days start drawing in.

Our sighthound knitwear, 2017 calendars and our exclusive Christmas cards were very popular today.

Luckily being very close to Halloween we didn’t hear any daytime fireworks being let off, which is a good thing.

 

AFG STALL AT SPROWSTON PARK AND RIDE CAR BOOT SALE, NORWICH 30.10.2016

A lovely day for the last Sunday sale for this year at this car boot sale until next April.

So a nice warm sunny Autumn day now the clocks have changed and the daylight hours will be getting less.

 

AFG WITH COMMUNITY MATTERS SCHEME AT WAITROSE, EATON, NORWICH, 01 to 31.10.2016

We were very fortunate to have been chosen along with two other local charities/good causes to benefit from the Waitrose Community Matters Scheme, which has been in operation now for over a decade, where the three chosen causes benefit from a share of £1,000.00 from the tokens donated to shoppers at the store who, in turn, donate them to their chosen cause in either of the two token donation stands located at the two entrance/exits of the store.

AfG received £285.00 at the end of the October Scheme.

AfG were also one of the three causes to benefit from the scheme when it was very first introduced many years ago.
