Fun Dog Shows packed into July
We’ve had a full on month of fund-raising throughout July:
Dog Show Codnor fete 3rd July
Dog Show Oakwood Gala 10th July
Dog Show Alvaston Carnival 24th July
Matlock Town Street collection 30th July
Dog Show Peak Village 31st July!!
Thank you to our hardworking, dedicated team of fund-raising volunteers with special thanks to my out-laws Jacky and John Angove from Wales who were kidnapped on not one but two weekend visits to Derby to help with ticketing tombola, loading and unloading the van, rising extra early before an event to help out with kennel cleaning, before being dragged off for a full day’s fund-raising!
A big thank you to each and every one of you who turned up, supported, took part or donated to any of the above – we could never achieve such fantastic results without you.
We hope that everyone who visited the shows enjoyed them as much as we did as these events aren’t just about raising vital funds, but fantastic opportunities for putting team JFD ‘out there’ to meet our supporters old and new and for us to witness the wonderful partnership between dog and owner/s – something that is all to sadly lacking in our day-to-day work at JFD!
Families like the Butlers, who supported both of our peak village dog shows this year are a true inspiration to us all.
