If you and your dog don’t fancy joining the shopping scrum this weekend, why not take a few hours to enjoy yourselves while raising cash for a good cause?
Sofi’s Bar in Leith is well known for its regular Dugs N Pubs events, at which canines and their owners can socialise over a pint (of water, if you’re a dog..) This year, for the last session of 2015, the staff are organising a special Festive Fundraiser for animals a little less fortunate than those who get to spend weekends in the pub.
On Sunday you can take your pooch down to Henderson Street for a fun afternoon of canine socialising, while you enjoy £5 cocktails (sponsored by Absolut), a pop-up shop where you can buy gifts for your four-legged friend, and a raffle with fantastic prizes (including a doggy pamper day…). There’ll be lots of treats and jollity, and all proceeds will go to Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home.
You are also invited to bring along some animal treats and new or unwanted pet toys to donate to the collection for the dogs and cats who find themselves in EDCH over the holiday.
So that’s two excuses for the price of one – you can’t let your poor mutt miss his party and you’re both doing Good Works too. Everyone’s a winner!
Sofi’s Dug Day Festive Fundraiser will begin at 1pm on Sunday 6th December at Sofi’s, 65 Henderson Street, Leith. If you can’t make the date but would like to be involved, raffle tickets are already on sale at Sofi’s (tel: 0131 555 7019).
