Update on past events
– The ball took place on the 13th April and although our numbers were down from last year, we still managed to raise over £6,000 which is fantastic, especially in today's economic climate. As usual, we would like to say a big thank you to everyone who helped with the event and everyone who came along on the night and supported us.
Garden Open Day
A total of £634.00 was raised over the two days which is great and a big thank you to everyone involved and particularly to Chris and Keith for opening their garden for us. The weather wasn't great but it still didn't 'rain on our parade'; you can see some photos of the garden on the PACT website
Our annual trip to Pets Corner, which this year was sponsored by Westfield Health, took place on the 11th May and altogether over 120 people went.
Round Robin Challenge
This was a fantastically supported event and for all those following on facebook and twitter the up to date account was both informative and amusing. It was a long hard journey but all made it back in one piece, although one vehicle limped in on the back of a RAC van. The team raised over £30,000. Well done to them all and for all the people who sponsored them. There is a set of photos of the Round Robin trip on the PACT website
