Thank you to the many supporters who sent gifts and money for the animals over Christmas, too many to mention but you know who you are. We also met lots of lovely people and their dogs during the Santa Paws appeal at Pets at Home in Colchester.
The other morning I was very surprised when Mother returned from a rescue, looking as black as Ollie the cat! Apparently she had to dislodge a tawny owl from a very sooty chimney, after which they both needed a bath. One of our volunteers was later left red faced after commenting upon the delightful soft tones of the rescued owl. She was most embarrassed when told the owl was elsewhere and the cooing was a recovering collared dove!
Our fundraising events start on 23rd March with our Spring Fair at Whatfield Village Hall, IP7 6QU. Lots to buy plus a raffle, refreshments and free parking.

This 5k bubble wonderland will see you running, jogging and dancing through four different coloured bubble stations, each with their own ‘bubble cannon’ blowing out 30 cubic meters of bubbles a minute!
Dominique Brunning, Fundraising Manager for Farleigh Hospice said: “We wanted to make Bubble Rush bigger and better than ever before! So we decided to combine our Maldon and Chelmsford events and host a super Bubble Rush in Maldon’s Promenade Park. Last year the Maldon event attracted nearly 1,000 people, helping us raise over £44,000. All the money raised is used to support people affected by any life-limiting illness, including lung disease, neurological conditions, heart failure and cancer. Whether you are ill, bereaved, or worried about someone who is, Farleigh Hospice is here for you.”
