Sunshine mixed with the most fabulous, warm atmosphere helped to trigger a great Easter weekend fundraising and awareness event at Woolly Park Farm!
The first of its kind, in just over six weeks we managed to organise a marquee from Cotswold Marquees Ltd, asked the brilliant Face Painting by Sarah Jayne Creations to come along and use her ethical and vegan face paints to decorate the faces of kids and adults too, arrange with the amazing The Artisan vegan Catering company to come along and cater for us. Their food certainly didn’t disappoint and neither did their aprons! One of our own sanctuary volunteers Charlotte Chapman Photography also signed up to be the event’s official photographer.
Our own team worked effortlessly, not only pulling out all the stops to bring in raffle prizes and tombola prizes, but over the weekend taking on different roles to ensure the success of the event. A special thanks to Abi Malins who knocked on the doors of many local businesses at short notice to make sure our Easter Vegan Hamper and Pamper hamper had sufficient goodies. Thank you especially to Tesco, Waitrose, Body Shop, Lush & Marks and Spencer.
Thank you also to Sarah from Dekany Design for the beautiful decorations & posters, to Suzanne Evetts Florists for their gorgeous table decorations, Lorri from VEGAN Happy Clothing, not only for her kind contribution to FARS merchandise, tressle tables and POS, but for looking after our merchandise stand on Saturday too.
After deducting the necessary costs for the event we raised £1544.96 and a huge amount of AWARENESS and love for Carole Webb’s amazing work!
We would like to thank everyone who came along to FARS Warwickshire this weekend. Our strap-line was “ Pledge not to eat lamb this Easter. Instead spend sometime with our beautiful rescued babies!” It melts our hearts that tickets sold out for both days. We would like to apologise to those who missed out because of this, but the event will be back again in September. Please keep an eye out for details. Tickets will go on sale very soon!
Once again thank you always for your support!
