CO OP FUND
We have been selected to receive a share of the 1% funding money for good causes . Please select Maxi’s Mates , the more we have people registering their cards to support Maxi’s Mates , the more of the fund money we will receive . It’s around a potential £2500 pot .
We were pleased to welcome 23 children from Newport Primary School today who came to visit our dogs and bring them some Christmas presents .
The whole school have been fund raising for us after voting to pick Maxi’s Mates as their charity for the year . They have all worked so hard for our dogs and enjoyed seeing exactly where their funds are going . The children were fantastic and a pleasure to show around . For legal reasons the children’s faces cannot be photographed.
We were proud to present Tom Pink today, with this lovely post in his honour. He’s been instrumental from start to finish, measuring up, digging holes, setting posts, stretching chicken wire and with help from a fantastic team completed 4 paddocks in a couple of months . Our dogs are now using them , enjoying plenty of exercise and fun. A huge thank you to him for his dedication and kindness he always shows to Maxi’s Mates and all our dogs .
We at Maxi’s Mates would like to give a huge thank you to the Durham Tees Valley Community rehabilitation Company for their invaluable help these last few months . We couldn’t have completed the new paddocks without the hard work from Dave Smallwood and his fantastic team of lads . They are all almost complete now and will make a huge difference to the well being of the dogs in our care . We would also like to thank Chris Douglas so much for allowing them to be at Maxi’s Mates and hope they will be able to keep coming back to us .
The team have never stopped working, have also cleared land, painted kennels, cut down the grass verges and even filling in the pot holes on the road. We are all very grateful to you all .
They are also the company that donated their own old mini bus last winter so they have been really supportive enabling us to help the stray dogs throughout the Redcar and Cleveland area .
We have had a cheque handed over to us from the Newport Primary School this morning of £520. They have been raising money for us for a few months and so far raised a magnificent £520. It’s a fantastic amount and we would like to thank the children and staff so very much for all their hard work .
Still more to come as we are their chosen charity until Easter next year .
We are so pleased to receive £637.02 from Dawn Chapman today . This fantastic amount was raised at the Bichon Frise meet up last Sunday 28th May 2017 . Thank you to her and all those that helped organise the event and of course all the lovely people and dogs that attended.
We would like to say a huge thank you to Lisa & Emily Chapman for organising a Race Night to raise funds for Maxi’s Mates. Also everyone who came to the race night or donated, bought raffle tickets. They raised a fantastic £900.
They will be giving £200 to dogs in distress and £700 to maxis mates! Also a special thank you to our Rico for being Maxis Mates mascot for the evening. He was such a good boy and he did so well.
