A pug group has organised a special pugmas party to raise money for the Pug Dog Welfare and Rescue Association at The Weatherley Centre in Biggleswade on December 10.
The event will include a raffle, party games, secret santa and a photobooth, with all proceeds going to the charity.
Ellie Pemberton who runs the group told the Comet: “I’ve been running North Herts Pugs for two years now. It was a way for myself, my pug Dot and pug cross Luna to meet new friends and enjoy socialising.
“The group has grown enormously within the 2 years. We now have 489 members in the group. We have monthly ‘meets/walks’ and at different times of the year I like to add in a little something different all in aid of charity. We’ve held tea parties, Halloween parties and just a few weeks ago we held a spooktacular pug walk again in aid of a pug charity.
“We have chosen to support PDWRA as they are a close charity to many of the members. Lots of members have rescue pugs from PDWRA or they foster them.
“PDWRA have rehomed 180 pugs this year alone. We as a group want to support them as they are always in need of help to rescue pugs or funds for their bills.”
Adult tickets are £5, children £3 and pugs go free. Payment for tickets should be sent via Paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with your name and how many people are attending. Spaces for the party are limited.
