We are thrilled to say that our Afternoon Tea Party at Buscot Park on Sunday 21st September raised just over £4,000 for Forever Hounds Trust’s work to help needy hounds! A big thank to everyone who came along and supported the event, and all our volunteers, trade stands, and donors of auction and raffle prizes, who made the day possible.
The day featured a fun dog show, raffle and auction, as well as lots of shopping opportunities and, of course, tea and cake!
You can see a brilliant collection of photos taken by volunteer Liz here – the images on this page are just a small selection of her wonderful work! If you’d like to have any of these photos for your collection, you can make a donation to Forever Hounds Trust at our Just Giving page here. Then send the email confirmation of your donation to Liz indicating which photos you’d like, and Liz will send over them to you. Thank you Liz!
Please do also visit the sites of our valued supporters, who donated raffle and auction items and helped to make the day such a success!
