Celebrating the Queen’s 80th birthday at the Animal Health Trust, Lanwades Park, Kentford, Newmarket on October 8th 2006. The AHT and Newmarket Town Council are joining forces to organise an event in celebration of Her Majesty The Queen’s 80th birthday. Her Majesty is Patron of the Trust and she very kindly selected the AHT to be one of only four charities specially chosen for 2006, to benefit from fundraising events throughout her birthday year. Our celebration event is to be held in the AHT grounds at Lanwades Park, Kentford on Sunday 8th October 2006. This will be a fun day which will include a sponsored dog walk and cycle ride, and an Animal Blessing Service will be held in the Trust’s private walled garden at mid-day. queen_80.jpg Photograph courtesy of Snowdon Camera Press The Essex Dog Team will put on an entertaining and exiting display in the main ring, and there will be a range of events and activities such as a dog show, “Have a Go” dog agility course, and a treasure hunt running throughout the day. The day’s events will commence at 10.00am with the dog walk and cycle ride setting off from the Trust and conclude at 3.30pm with the cutting of the birthday cake and the National Anthem and entry is free to all. If you would like to participate in the cycle ride or dog walk or join us on the day, please contact the fundraising department on 08700 502380 for more information.
