Thanks to Bolsover Town Social Club who hosted an amazing Bingo Fundraiser in aid of the Sanctuary and special thanks to Sanctuary Supporters Louise and Alison who did a fabulous job of organising everything. The event was so popular, we ran out of chairs and Bingo books! So many thanks to everyone who came along. Aswell as Bingo, Nicola, who runs the venue provided a delicious buffet. A raffle was held with over a hundred raffle prizes kindly donated by businesses and supporters of the Sanctuary and it helped raise much needed funds for the animals. A big thank you to everyone who donated towards the raffle prizes including Perfect Pet- Bolsover, Fulton Foods – Barnsley (Bolsover Store), The Original Factory Shop – Bolsover, Coop – Bolsover, Morrisons – Staveley, Becky Candy Salon – Clowne, Elmtree Restaurant at Elmton, Zebra Fashions – Chesterfield, Chesters – Chesterfield, Whynot.co.uk in collaboration with The Devonshire Arms Upper Langwith, Brampton Brewery – Chesterfield, Natures Menu, Spillers Animal Feed, Spar – Creswell, Jonathan Yearsley Pet Portraits, Bextons Butchers – Whittington, Tesco – Clowne, Pam Goodison Glass Artist – Sheffield, Tog 24, Storck KG Confectionery, Chocolate Gift Company, Northern Tea Merchants – Chesterfield – apologies if we missed anyone.
