Country Dog Show goes online!
We are sad to say that owing to the Coronavirus, uncertainty around when large events will be safe to run and attend we have taken the difficult decision to cancel our new Country Dog Show, which was due to be held over the weekend of 8/9th August at our Church Knowle centre.
As we write this we can't help but be left with a feeling of emptiness in our hearts, we know that you will be feeling the same and your calendars will be empty too - so we have a plan…
We are taking the event online!
Yes, it can be done and we have some very exciting plans that the team are working on behind the scenes.
To give you a taster there will be things like:
- Online auction
- Live and pre-recorded workshops
- Online dog show
- Live broadcasts inc music and demos
- Some special surprises
These will go ahead over the weekend of the 8th and 9th August, so you can sit back in the comfort of your own home and still enjoy our event!
Cancelling an event on this scale is decision that is not taken lightly, the financial loss to the charity is huge so we hope you will want to join us in the virtual world to support us and help us recoup some of funds we would have raised. With your valued support we can do this and continue to raise money and awareness to care for our rescue animals.
This would have been our major fundraising event of the year and we are expecting to lose £8,000 of funds. All money raised at our events goes directly towards the care of rescue animals are centre, if you would like to make a donation please click here
If you have already purchased an early bird entry ticket, you can get a full refund by visiting either one of our Centres or Charity shops once they reopen. You will need your ticket to receive a refund.
