Fund Raising At the Figgat Fair

June 27, 2015

 

Figgat Fair one of Strathspey’s oldest fairs, was this year held on 28 June during “Grantown 250” celebrations to commemorate the 250th anniversary of the creation of this 18th century planned town by the Grant family. The Badenoch & Strathspey branch of Therapet has for several years had a stall at the Figgat Fair, to raise funds for CCST & Therapet with a tombola, hook-a-duck and other competitions, and also to increase awareness of the Therapet visiting service. Local Therapet volunteers and supporters of Therapet man the stall, and bring along their Therapets, and James Macdonald one of CCST’s Trustees comes along with the CCST marquee. This year they raised £350 for CCST & Therapet, and made contact with three potential new Therapets  and their owners. During the afternoon, several of the Therapet volunteers walked their pets around the fair, and showed just how much their dogs love being petted and made a fuss of. Vivien Moen, the Area Representative for Badenoch & Strathspey, said it was a very successful and day, and was fun for one and all – and it didn’t rain! She thanked everyone for their support
