Wag & Bone Show Oldies (including competition results)

The Oldies Club stall at the 2006 Wag & Bone Show raised nearly £250 and lots of awareness. Despite the fierce heat, the stand was pretty busy all day and we got to talk to lots of dog enthusiasts and representatives of other rescues about how the Oldies Club works and what we do.

Many thanks to our kind sponsors, Initial Ideas (gifts & gadgets) & WOW (creative design agency) who made it possible for us to attend by covering our costs for print materials and the stand itself.

The competition was won by Pauline Hadlen of Bucks.

All of these are dogs that have been homed or are still looking for homes with the help of the Oldies Club.

Here are a few photos:

And by the end of the day, at least one of the team running the stall was quite worn out:
