Spring Auction raises an astonishing £1917.22

E-mail Print PDF

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.

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.

STORAGE… we need your help!

E-mail Print PDF

As you know we have the charity shop for a couple of weeks each year in Wallasey and it’s a great fundraiser for NWESSR.

We are in need of more storage space to keep our items and wondered whether any of our supporters have, or know of, any garages or small storage units that we could make use of for the items for the shop. Ideally we would like the storage in the Wallasey area or in close proximity for ease of transfer of goods.

We wouldn't need constant access, mainly just adding a few bits and pieces over a 6 month period then moving the items to the shop when we have it.

If you think you can help or you know someone who can, please drop an email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and let us know, someone will be in touch.

We are currently in the shop at the moment and may have some items for storage at the end of this week, so time is of the essence.

Thank you for your help.
