Pawtastic fundraising for animals at Pooley Bridge

Oak Tree’s Becky Lowis with event organisers Joyce Robinson, Richard Young and Lucy Coulston and Colonel Chris Sanderson from ABF The Soldiers’ Charity

[F]abulous fundraisers from The Parkin Memorial Hall, Pooley Bridge held three separate dominoes events to raise money for Oak Tree Animals’ Charity and ABF The Soldiers’ Charity.

Each night was attended by 50 people and raised £300 to help animals in our region.

The cheque was accepted by Becky Lowis, Community Engagement Supervisor at Oak Tree who said “We are delighted to have received this very generous donation from The Parkin Memorial Hall and would like to thank everyone involved in making this evening such a success. The money received by Oak Tree from this event will help us to continue to support pets in our region.”

The Community Team at Oak Tree have carried out several Trap, Neuter, Return programmes in the area to help control and manage the health of the feral cat population in the region. This involves humanely trapping the cats, health checking them, neutering and providing an initial flu vaccination, before returning them to their homes where they will continue to be looked after by their “feeder”. Joyce Robinson said, “It was such a relief to have the cats neutered on our farm and we were very impressed at how effective the program is.” She continues “we chose Oak Tree due to the ongoing support they provide the local community with its feral cat colonies”.
