Thank you from APA Nerja It is with great pleasure I can confirm the amount raised last month at the APA Nerja and Canis Connection Christmas show was just over €3000. APA Nerja and Canis Connection would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who came on the day, we think everyone had an enjoyable day including all those beautiful dogs who participated in the show. They would also like to thank all the APA volunteers who were manning the stalls, the tombola, raffle, bar, BBQ and serving paella. Thanks to Val Thom for setting up a fantastic grotto, and thanks to Santa and his little helpers for doing a brilliant job on the day, thanks Mog, Karen and Kev. Thanks to the The Box Drum Band and to Lee for supplying the Mics, background music and Tweed creations for some fantastic photos. Thanks to the stall holders for participating and making a donation. Thanks to Food for Thought for supplying extra tables and chairs. Thanks to the Town Hall for supplying tables, chairs and barriers for arena. Thanks to Ayo for donating a delicious Paella. Thanks to Augusto for making Migas. And to Jackie Downes for working so hard getting sponsors, in a short time she managed to get each prize sponsored, raising a fantastic €1240 just in sponsorship - this is an amazing achievement. Thank you to all sponsors and each business who sponsored the prizes/classes in the show. A list of the sponsors will be published shortly, and your certificates will be handed to you as soon as possible. Thank you to the guys who did the dog frisbee exhibition, which was just amazing. Lastly, we would like to say a massive thank you to Cristina at Canis Connection, apart from all the support and advice we receive from this great professional, she opened the doors to her centre where we were able to host the show. From all at APA Nerja we want to thank everyone for the continuous support we receive, without which we would not be able to continue. All the money raised will be going to paying outstanding bills at the vets and dog residence. LAURA DOWNES, APA NERJA 35
