As you all know, we collect money throughout the year to be able to neuter the street cats and dogs in my village, with donations.
But this year, we decided to try something a little different. We held a table-top sale on market day and it went really well.
For a few weeks before, we collected up bric-a-brac as we all know one man’s junk is another man’s treasure.
Also, lots of ladies throughout the village baked cakes and made jams and marmalade for the stall.
On Wednesday morning, armed with all our goodies, we set up tables, arranged everything to look inviting and awaited our customers. Soon, they were arriving and I was really pleased to see lots of our local Turkish neighbours giving their support to this worthy cause.
By just after lunch time, there was hardly anything left to sell and many satisfied customers. We will definitely do another couple of these sales before the end of the year as we raised lots of money and it was really fun.
It gave me a chance to catch up with lots of old friends and to make some new ones, as I am so busy working on boats that I am not around too much at the moment. I so enjoy seeing a village community working together to improve the lives of all our four legged friends!
