Our Open Day

13 May 2013

Our Open Day/20th Anniversary celebration was a great success. We saw many of our old trusted clients and we want to thank you all for coming. Some of the staff who were with us in the ‘olden days’ also popped in to have a look – it was lovely to see balloonthem again.

Visitors were invited to have a peek behind the scenes and were given information about how we do things at Cogges. The charities had set up some stalls at the back, and Kerry W showed off her bunnies and provided first-rate information.

We’d set up some games for the children and there were balloons and fabulous face-painting (for young and older) provided by Carole Hooper (http://www.carolescrazyfaces.co.uk/)

Karen served some potent Pimm’s, enjoyed by many despite (or maybe because of) the sometimes inclement weather, and we served coffee, tea and cakes upstairs.
A good time was had by all, and we collected £500 for our selected charities (Sunshine Cat Rescue and Desperate Greekies)
