On Christmas Eve we took Santa and his reindeers, 3 goats, a sheep, Lady Gaga the duck, a hen and lots of rabbits and guinea pigs to Martin House Children’s Hospice, Boston Spa.

It was a very special event with over 200 children with their families and carers.

Tracey Oliver, whose 3 year old son Alfie, urgently needs a heart and lung transplant supported Nuzzlets by organising a Halloween children’s party at Burton Stone Community Centre on 29th October 2011.

Tracey, Rob and Alfie have been to the Nuzzlets farm on many occassions and seen the Nuzzlets animals at Martin House Children’s Hospice. Alfie enjoyed his 3rd birthday party at Nuzzlets and has given a loving home to Patch and Stripe, a lionhead rabbit and guinea pig.

The children at the tea party played with the Nuzzlets animals, had face painting, balloon modeling, cake decorating and pumpkin carving.

Tracey made £210 for Nuzzlets for which we are extremely grateful.
