On the 28th May 2016 The Parks Trust held their annual Big Doggie Do at Willen Lake in Milton Keynes. The event, which has been going since 2007, is popular with families and dog owners alike with numbers reaching over 1000 on the day.

Jog My Dog wanted to get involved in the event this year and chose Hula Animal Rescue as the local charity to raise money for. We wanted to do a raffle and sell home made cakes and bakes; and with Hula very kindly offering us the use of one of their gazebo’s and The Parks Trust giving us the stall for free we were off to a great start!

With Special Thanks:

Over a 6 week period we contacted loads of companies, restaurants and businesses in Milton Keynes and had some very generous donations towards the raffle prize list. With special thanks to:

Jog My Dog also got involved in the prize list and two lucky winners on the day won a voucher for 2x running sessions or 2x doggy day care days, valued at £36 and £50 respectively.

With special thanks to Mel Biago and Majbritt Moulding for the design of the raffle prize list and for getting all the amazing prizes sorted for the day, along with baking the delicious lemon drizzle cake and shortbread! Milton Keynes Creative Print also gave a big discount on the banner print cost and we are very grateful.

What we raised:

We had an amazing result on the day selling all of our baked goodies and over 1000 raffle tickets – raising a total of £411 for Hula Animal Rescue. With a great turnout and warm weather it really couldn’t have been more perfect.

Thank you to all those who contributed on the day by purchasing a raffle ticket (or six); Hula are very appreciative, as are we. You made all the hard work worth it!
