funday1About seventy dogs of all breeds (but mostly Labradors) attended Labrador Rescue Kent and Borders (LRK) Summer Fayre at Wye yesterday, Sunday 27 July.  Officially opened by the Mayor of Ashford, John Link, the fayre sprang into action with its dog show.

For a few hours dogs and owners were able to enjoy the summer sunshine whilst supporting the fund raising activities of LRK – the raffle, the silent auction, the tombola for kids and adults, over the bale races and hide and seek games for the dogs, as well as the delicious home-made cream teas, and BBQ.  Nearly £4K was raised.

Master of ceremonies Matthew Kearsey-Lawson,head chef and managing director of award winning Kent Fine Foods kept the crowds entertained with his witty banter and amusing tales.

Commenting on the fayre, LRK trustee Maggie Hinks says: It was so nice to see so many of our rescue dogs with their new owners and to see that they have found their forever homes.  We are so pleased with the money that we have raised and would like to thank all our volunteers and everyone who attended the fayre.  We look forward to seeing everyone again next year. 

If you are interested in volunteering please contact Maggie Hinks on 01580 720408
