Summer Open Day Success

Posted by Jon in News on Tuesday 16/08/2011 22:14 +01:00.

On Sunday we held our annual summer open day and what a great success it was. We saw over 1,000 visitors come through the gates of the sanctuary, normally closed to the public. On the day we raised £4,000 vital funds needed to keep our voluntary charity running.

Although the doors officially opened at 11am, there was a steady queue forming by 10:30 and people were still around at 5pm, even though the bar had sold out by 3pm and Veggies the vegan caterers sold out not much later.

    Just wanted to say how much our family enjoyed our time on Sunday at Brinsley Animal Rescue, it was good to talk to like-minded people (which makes a change).  The food we tasted was out of this world, the cakes were to die for and the veggie burgers were very tasty.  Very pleased to see how much money was raised.  Thanks for the open day.  The Haines family.

    A very enjoyable day, good weather, good food and excellent company of people with similar values. Heart warming to see the care and dedication to the rescued animals but tinged with sadness as to how they came to be there. Also glad to see how much money was raised.
