Fundraising Events – another new event added

PDWRA will beย here too – please come along and see us!


PDWRA will be attending both the 30 June and 25 August Port Fest events – we would love to see you and your 4 legged friends there!


A huge thank you from the PDWRA Trustees to the wonderful Team Essex volunteers (and their pugs) who attended the Essex Pawsome Dog Show yesterday.

Sadly, we were defeated by the weather.ย  We were fortunate that our 2 gazebos were not blown away by the 40mph winds.ย  The torrential rain threatened to ruin all the tombola prizes, and it was just too wet and windy to even attempt to display any PDWRA merchandise.ย  Our volunteers, and their pugs, remained cheerful but everyone and every pug was cold and wet. ย Attendance was sparse because of the awful weather, so the decision to pack up and head for home was taken mid-morning.

The British weather is unfortunately beyond anyoneโ€™s control, but after so much hard work and effort had gone into preparing for this event, everyone was deeply disappointed.

Team Essex will be representing PDWRA at another event in September โ€“ watch this page for further details.


Saturday, 24 August 10.30 – 5pm, New Eltham SE9
