A volunteer who adopted a stray puppy she found in a Moroccan square is holding a Christmas fayre on Saturday in an effort to raise funds to bring her four legged-friend to Letchworth.
Lorraine Brown was working for volunteering organisation Original Volunteers – which helps orphans, street kids and homeless people in Marrakesh – when she discovered three-month-old puppy, Zahara.
After deciding that she couldn’t abandon Zahara on the streets alone, she adopted the mixed breed mutt and is trying to raise £1,200 to cover veterinary costs.
The fayre takes place at the Free Church Hall on Gernon Road from 11am to 4pm and will feature more than 20 craft stalls, a raffle, kids competitions and festive refreshments.
Lorraine, who lives in Stoneley, said: “It will be a great day and not only promotes Zahara’s cause, but it will have an underlying theme of loving your pet at Christmas.”
