Helpers would be warmly welcomed at any of the following events for attending to the public, showing off their dogs, selling merchandise or bringing along any other fundraising idea appropriate to the event.

Offers of help, specially accomplished fundraising events would be very welcomed! Street collections, (you need permission from your local council), coffee mornings, car boots, dog food collections at your local supermarket, these all help.
