Thank you to everyone who came along to our Dog Show on Sunday, we had over 40 dogs taking part and we all had a barktastic time.
The event was kindly sponsored by our friends at Coxydene Farm Foods in Kirknewton, who provided prizes for the classes and raffle. We are really grateful for their support and generosity.
We had 6 classes and the big finale was the Best in Show. The most entertaining class was the best retrieve which created a few giggles. A big thank you to all the lovely dogs who took part and they were all so well behaved.
We raised over £400 for Ravelrig, which is fantastic and will go a long way in helping support the stables, horses and riders. Our events are not possible without the people organising, the generosity of people with raffle prizes, home baking and of course the wonderful volunteers who helped on the day.
Don’t forget we have our Book Sale coming up at the end of September at the Gyle, if you have any books or are able to help over the weekend of the sale then please let us know.

With another Fundraising event around the corner we are looking for all your wonderful bakers out there to provide a cake, or two, to our Home baking stall.
Our Home Baking stall is always really popular and if the selection we received for our Open Day in June was anything to go by it is obvious why!
We had a fantastic choice of cakes, buns, chocolate crispies and loafs that were enthusiastically demolished quickly.
So, if you can help us raise more money for Ravelrig and bake a cake then drop your baking donation in to us on the morning of the 17th September
Bake a cake for Ravelrig
