Fun Day 2009

Guardians of EntryA lovely summers morning greeted everybody as they arrived at the beautiful setting of Hendwick Hall for the annual Fun Day in support of Rescue. The two ladies, who were guardians of entry, assured us that no rain was forecast for the area. Everyone was looking for a shady spot under trees.

Taking ShelterWithin an hour of proceedings beginning the monsoon arrived! The heavens opened and needless to say the rain ran like a tap off those eagerly sought sun shading trees. Even our umbrellas leaked!! Luckily the monsoon moved on as swiftly has it had arrived and the sun soon came out, drying everything quickly.


Rescue ParadeRescue Coordinator JaniceThe heavy rain had made underfoot conditions wet and slippery resulting in the games suffering a delay. The agenda for the day was re-jigged with a Rescue Parade opening proceedings. Each Rescue Dog paraded around the ring with their new owners while their histories were read out. This was a real tear jerker, some of the stories were really heartbreaking but now at least each and every one of them has a caring and loving new owner. A huge thank you to all of the folk who take on these dogs, sometimes with problems, but are prepared to work with them and  realise happy outcomes.

CateringLunch was excellent as usual,  the Mackfall family all work very hard to produce stunning food.

We were treated to an interesting demonstration of dog control followed by agility,  a scurry and various games for dogs and handlers. The children enjoyed games specifically tailored for them. There were wonderful prizes offered for all events including an excellent Raffle and Tombola. Our thanks to Alex Schofield and Ann Gates for running everything in their normal seamless fashion.

Huge thanks to "Clan Mackfall" for allowing us the use of their lovely home and for the work they put in to organising the day.

This resulted in a grand total of £1,006.63 being raised for Rescue!
