Charity Fun at Hale Fen

Camelot Creature Comforts the pet shop on Hale Fen held its yearly Charity Fun Dog Show at the beginning of September. There they all were! The scruffiest, the cutest, the cuddliest pooches, all vying for many prizes in the ten different categories on offer.

They ranged from; the Best Puppy (Under 12 months), the Best Pedigree, Best Crossbreed, Veteran (Over 7 years) to the Prettiest Bitch and Most Handsome Dog, Young Handler, Scruffest, Dog The Judge Would Like To Take Home, to the Best Fancy Dressed.

John and Alison Bushe who always put on a superb show and work tirelessly throughout the year to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society decided this time to run it to jointly benefit the British Hen Welfare Trust.

“People really rallied round and made it such a successful event. There are so many people to thank who made it all happen from stewarding the gate, cooking the bbq, selling tickets for the raffle and the tombola, to taking the photos and organising the various dog categories to be judged.

And we are delighted to announce that we raised £450.00 for the Alzheimer’s Society and British Hen Welfare Trust which made it all worthwhile,” said John, who pointed out that there are still monthly raffle prizes to be won, continuing to raise money for charity all year round.
