Keep Your Pet News

Published on 08 January 2018 02:36 PM

Keep Your Pet is one of the Lord Mayor's three chosen Charities this year.

We will receive one third of the proceeds from all of the fundraising events undertaken by the Lord Mayor during her year of office. The list below shows the current list of these events. This is a major fundraising opportunity for our Keep Your Pet that we need to take full advantage of.

Please come along to some of these if you can, and invite your friends.

Thank you
