Twilight: ensuring a dog’s last memory is of being loved

Twilight Christmas Fete

Oh my festive goodness!!

The weather was grim, there were umpteen other fetes within a small radius of our village, and did I mention how filthy the weather was? But, the volunteers arrived, all dressed merry and fun, smiles and ready for action. All their beautiful and yummy food just waiting to be munched. What a team you are, how blessed are we xxx

And then so many of you came. It was just precious. Doggies, children, adults galore. The atmosphere was full of wonderful energy and love. I know many set out but had to return home defeated by the grim weather. We are just so glad you are safe xxx

Thank you, every single one of you, however you were involved in the Puddings’ festive event. Over €2,500 was raised in a most beautiful and convivial way. Incredible.

Merry winter love and light to you all, a heartfelt thank you from every Pudding and Mike and Leeanne.

La Charrue

Over the last ten years, we have learnt that running a charity is no easy business. To keep your dream alive, in our case, rescuing and loving old dogs to their comfortable dying day, you need to keep people interested so they will help and support you. Raising funds is hard work, keeping on raising funds is mighty tough. What Pauline and Clive, at La Charrue, have done for Twilight in the past more than a few years is magnificent. Thank you team, La Charrue. Thank you Pauline for your energy and love. Thank you for being a life vein of Twilight.
