The Avenue Vets Winter Wonderland Win

16 January 2013 - 20:48

In December 2012 The Avenue Vets in Kettering took time out of their busy day to decorate an amazing christmas tree and enter it into the Kettering Winter Wonderland christmas competition.  If they won they said they would donate the winnings to us. 

Hundreds of Kettering vistors and shoppers visited the grotto during the run up to Christmas and viewed all of the of amazing trees - we had some stiff competition!  However thanks to the dedication of our friends and fans of both Animals in Need and The Avenue Vets we received the most votes and won!!

Here we are at The Avenue Vets collecting our cheque for £1800 along with Lacey one of our rescue dogs. Hannah Shepherd, Head Nurse at The Avenue Veterinary  Clinic said: "It was a fantastic combined effort from the Avenue staff,  clients, and the community as a whole. Winning this has enabled us to  donate a very generous sum of money to Animals In Need - Maxicare; a  wonderful charity who do a fabulous job, caring for and re-homing  abandoned animals, whilst relying completely on donations."

Thanks to everyone invovled in this event!
