CHRISTMAS FAIR 2022

GRANDE DAZE CHRISTMAS FAIR –

4TH DECEMBER, 2022 Salle de Fete, La Bigottiere

What has become our traditional annual event is at our usual
venue, Salle de Fete, La Bigottiere on Sunday, 4th December. There will be lots of bargains that you have come to expect and a full contingency of our benevoles happy to welcome you.

We have beautiful handcrafted goods unique to Grande Daze and specially made by our supporters. All through the year it’s been a hive of activity with our benevoles making dog blankets and cosy linings/beds and coats to keep your pets warm, plus many other articles.

Our refreshment area will again have delicious cakes and hot beverages and even mulled wine to give that special feeling of the Christmas Season.

Bangles, Brooches and Beads

We have lots of baubles, bangles and beads at bargain prices for that colourful stocking filler and a collection of special silver items some set with amber.

Semi Precious Stones

Thank you for Another Great Sale

It’s the end of the summer and our sales team have done a wonderful job. The support from all those who have purchased or donated goods has been awesome. All of our animal friends have benefitted greatly from the events. Recently we have had a more unusual addition to our rescues. He is a year old billy goat (Hamilton) who became too frisky for his owners. Hamilton now lives next to our sheep and is proving to be a lively character indeed! He has been given the once over by our vets, been neutered and given a good grooming. Hamilton is curious and interested in the goings on in the sand-school and often disrupts the work of the benevoles when they clear out the vans and sheds. We’re all on a steep learning curve!

Look out for the advert for our Christmas event!

A BIG THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WITH A SPECIAL MENTION FOR STEVE AT MANGES TU? !

Best wishes Anita

The Round Way to Fundraise

We thank everyone who donates anything to help us care for the rescues but this particular donation seems to have made everybody feel happy.

Ann Taylor advertised spare wood and fencing on Facebook.  Alan Morpeth answered the advertisement and agreed to Ann’s proposal to give a donation to Grande Daze instead of paying her.  Ann was happy that her spare goods had been collected and Alan was delighted to have the wood.  All the animals have the benefit of this deal and everybody is happy!

 Thank you for your generous, thoughtful and rounded way to fundraise.

The Purple Van Was There!

The Purple Van was again at Manges-Tu?

Once again, our Purple Van has been at Manges-Tu? to fundraise for the Rescue Centre. We are so grateful to, on this occasion, our benevoles, John and Pam, for their efforts.

The animals at Grande Daze Rescue will benefit greatly from the wonderful support of the people buying goods and we hope that you will continue to find the bargains we love to offer. We have been able to maintain vaccinations and carry out the usual parasite prevention so prevalent this time of year! One of our most recent rescues is receiving appropriate treatment for an eye condition and a nasty skin infection, to name but a few of the issues you have helped to fund. We also thank Steve, Manges-Tu? for his support.

Our apologies for this late acknowledgement.

With thanks – Anita and Peter
