The Summer Open Day was a great day, there was a sense of community spirit and the feedback we received was fantastic. During the day we had around 250 at its peak with at least 500 throughout the day. A big massive THANK YOU to all that came and supported us.
It was nice to see so many volunteer friends, people who had adopted an animals from us in the past, locals and people from near and far.
We are still calculating the money made on the day, but so far it is in excess of £2,200, this is fantastic and will help us pay for the running costs for a few weeks as well as allowing us to build a much needed aviary.
The event started by the attendance of Councillors Pat and Lynda Lally, the Mayor and Mayoress of Broxtowe who presented us a check for £50, raised at the Beeston Carnival.
The events on the day included;
- Veggies – vegan caterers
- Marpool Brewery
- Lawrence Vets
- Cats Protection
- Animal Accident Rescue Unit
- Friends of Brinsley Headstocks
- Eastwood Volunteer Bureau
- Sweet Vegan (Vegan marshmallows)
- Sound Bites (health food shop)
Brinsley Animal Rescue also had the following stalls;
- teas, coffee and cakes
- Find the chicken egg
- Niks Arx
- Animal Adoption
Marpool Brewery kindly donated all of their profit from selling specially made vegan beer, this went down very well
