Facebook Winter auction... the best yet

E-mail Print PDF

The news that NWESSR's Facebook Winter Auction, raised an absolutely staggering amount, was met with delight by the charity. The auction was held in memory of our webmasters, NWESSR Rescue springer Paddy, who sadly went to Rainbow Bridge on 13th November.

The auction itself raised an impressive ...... £3065.68 ...... PLUS a further £250 was raised from 2 x football raffle cards - offering a Radley watch (donated by Vicki Cutler) and a genuine Jimmy Choo purse (donated by Ellie Armishaw) ... PLUS the lovely Sally Orrell donated bracelets which raised a further £330...

Another supporter donated a number of 'Piggin Pigs' which raised a further £105, one supporter donated 2 x 3 night breaks at her farm in Scotland - each raised £350 and another supporter  donated a week in her holiday home in France.

The final total was a massive £3750.68

Everyone at NWESSR would like to THANK every single person who supported the auction by bidding, donating, purchasing items, rounding up their payments or just simply making a donation... And of course the charity is once again, full of gratitude to Webmaster Vicki Cutler, for exceeding her previous auction personal best, and achieving this extraordinary result, particularly when it came at the same time as losing her beloved Paddy.

Every penny really does count and this will make a HUGE difference to so many springers.


Spring Auction raises an astonishing £1917.22

What an amazing result. The on-line Facebook auction appears to go from strength to strength. Organising an auction like this might be a daunting prospect for most, but not dynamic NWESSR webmaster, Vicki Cutler.

In-between each live auction, she can be found appealing to companies and individuals to donate items to sell. Anyone on the receiving end of her pitch would find it hard to say no; the results certainly show, with some fantastic items to bid on. Then she uploads all the items onto the auction page and keeps an eye on bids as they come in. After the auction ends the work, of course, does not stop there - its then time for Vicki to disappear under a sea of bubble wrap and boxes, as she packages all the items to post to the winning bidders.

Thank you to all the people who donate items to sell, to all those people who buy the goods, and of course, our huge thanks to Vicki, for the sterling effort she puts in to get such an excellent result. Thanks also to one of our supporters who wanted to remain anonymous but who sent a cheque to round our auction funds up to £2000.00.

NWESSR Chairwoman

Morecambe Bay Walk 2015

E-mail Print PDF

The train from Kents Bank posed a challenge - only half of it turned up due to a mechanical failure.

As the train pulled away it resembled a train usually seen in rural India, with too many people on it. Those of us left on the station quickly mobilised and piled into cars to reach Arnside.

We were grateful for the warm and sunny afternoon and NWESSR people and dogs were joined by walkers from two other organisations, there must have been around 500 people. Strangely enough a lot of those walkers also had springers - the opportunity was not missed to hand out leaflets. All the dogs on the walk should be praised for their impeccable behaviour.

The River Kent was mid-thigh high and lovely and warm. Cedric Robinson lined us all up, and we plunged in together. My dog Monty relished the swim as usual.

Thank you to all the walkers who joined us and helped us to raise £240. This figure will rise as there is still some sponsorship money outstanding.

Once again our thanks go to Cedric Robinson for guiding us safely across the Bay and to Eric Taylor for organising the walk on behalf of NWESSR.

Finally, it was lovely to see Alfie, who was originally called Paddy. Alfie was rescued from a dreadful cellar along with a number of other springers. What a difference for him, walking in such a glorious setting, with owners who love him.
