Della had an opportunity to help out at one of the many fund raising events that Friends of South Gloucestershire Strays hold. This one was at Thornbury, near Bristol. They had a street fair and the Christmas Lights were being turned on. There was a fair and lots of stalls selling food and drink, as well as charity stalls.
The Friends of South Gloucestershire Strays had an assortment of home made goods, some dog coats, toys and leads etc. The big pull however was a Teddy tombola, every one's a winner.

It was a freezing cold night, but luckily dry. There was a steel band playing Christmas music and a couple of rescued dogs gave an appearance to encourage people to come and have a chat.
These events totally rely on the volunteers making stuff to sell, turning up to set everything out and then staying to greet the customers.
I am sure that the dogs appreciate the efforts made on their behalf. They have a Facebook page as well as a website, link below.
