Burnham Woof Fest to raise funds for Spirit of the Dog Rescue


A FAMILY dog festival is planned to raise funds for a rescue charity as well as a rescue kit.

Burnham’s Woof Fest was first held last year at the Parlor Cafe at Creeksea Place Farm in aid of Spirit of the Dog Rescue.

The event raised £1,244 for the charity and was hugely popular. The cafe therefore decided to relaunch it.

There is a range of dog-related entertainment throughout the day for festival-goers.

This includes a canine talent show in the cafe garden, a charity raffle, dog-related vendors in The Canary Shed, a photographer offering dog photoshoots and fly-ball sessions.

A Creeksea Place Barns spokesperson said: “This year we will not only be fundraising for the benefit of Spirit of The Dog Rescue, but we will also be fundraising to enable us to purchase and install a defibrillator on site. .

“When a defibrillator is used within three to five minutes of a cardiac arrest, the survival rate can increase by 50 to 70 percent.”

Woof Fest is held on Saturday, May 7, between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Admission is free and donations are collected the same day.

If enough funds are raised, the new on-site defibrillator will be available to the public.
