Thousands of four-pawed supporters joined Battersea Ambassador Dame Jacqueline Wilson for the 11th Old Windsor Fun Day sponsored by Petplan on Saturday 5th July which I hosted with my friends from Radio St. Helier.
Over 2,000 animal lovers visited the Berkshire centre to enjoy 11 dog classes, stalls and a Great Battersea Bake Off competition judged by Dame Jacqueline and Battersea Chief Executive, Claire Horton.
One special guest at the Fun Day was two-year-old mongrel Biscuit who was given his own special rehoming parade to help him find a home after spending over 500 days in Battersea’s care. The loveable boy gained lots of attention and hopes to follow in the paw steps of many former Battersea residents that also stepped into the Show Ring on Saturday.
Just like one-year-old Buster who was crowned Best Battersea Dog with his success story of turning his life around after coming into Old Windsor as an underweight stray last April. The Border Collie cross English Setter – who was rehomed with Sarah Pounde and her family in Maidenhead – won the prestigious award for his incredible transformation and beautiful way with children.
