April Lodge Guinea Pig Rescue is a registered charity and we rely entirely on donations to complete our work. Each year we hold a range of events to raise funds, raise awareness, and to stay in touch with our many friends and supporters. Our big annual Open Day and Fun Show, held every August, is always great fun and we welcome back some of our ex-rescues who have now gone on to their forever homes!
Here are some of the events planned for 2017
We have lots of events coming up, all of which we’d love you to get involved in!
Sponsored Walk, Sandwich, Sunday 16th July, 10am
We leave from Sandwich Quay at 10am and the walk is approximately 2 miles (mostly rural). Supervised children and dogs are welcomed, and we will plan in some refreshments for afterwards. Registration and sponsorship forms are available from April Lodge Guinea Pig Rescue. Call in any day between 10am and 12pm to sign up, or call for more details.
April Lodge’s Annual Open Day and Fun Show, Sunday 6th August, 10am–3pm
This is held in the meadow adjoining April Lodge, giving us plenty of room, and entry is via a donation. The day includes piggy photography, stalls, a tombola, the sale of new and used piggy equipment, and much more. All proceeds go to the charity. For more info, see Facebook closer to the date.
Race Night, Manston Village Hall, Saturday 7th October
The details are to be confirmed, but we will be holding our annual race night in October. More to follow in due course.
