Annual Fundraiser

I held a fundraiser on October 9th at the Teeling Centre in Collooney, which John very kindly let us use without charge as his contribution to the sanctuary.

We had a very special guest, Pauline McGlynn who you will know as ‘Mrs Doyle’ in Father Ted.  Pauline did a hen agility course with Nugget the hen fro the sanctuary.

Two friends worked with their dogs, Sheila did a fashion parade with her dog Kim and Brenda worked with her dogs, Cadeau & Pip, I worked with Dakota and Autumn.

I would like to say a special Thank you to Sheila and Brenda for the work they did during the weeks prior to the show.

A huge Thank you to Mary for spending countless hours baking her wonderful cakes and for providing everyone with refreshments on the day.

Special thanks to my son Derek & Catherine for their help on the day and a huge Thank you to Derek for sorting out a technical problem on the day and for providing the music for the acts.

A big Thank you to Darren and Suzie, the sanctuary vets for their contribution from their stall and their continued care of the birds.

Many thanks to Shane and Clare who helped behind the scenes looking after Dakota, Autumn and Nugget.

Thank you to Lonely and Ciaran for their great help on the day and last but not least Thank you to everyone that came along to support us, you raised an amazing €721.60.

See you all next year!!
