Musical Moggies Raise Dosh for Doggies
An outdoor charity concert in North Lincolnshire is helping to raise cash for rescue dogs next month.
1960s band The Moggies, acoustic duo Mia and the Moon and covers band Koostix are performing at The Mount Tea Room in Castlethorpe, near Brigg on Saturday 1st August from 4pm until 9.30pm in support of Jerry Green Dog Rescue.
Tickets for Moggies for the Doggies include live music and a pie and pea supper for just £15 for adults, and children go free. A licensed summer bar and ice cream will also be available.
“We’re really excited to be hosting our third Moggies for the Doggies summer concert at The Mount Tea Room,” said Jenny Harris, fundraiser at Jerry Green Dog Rescue.
Jenny explained that Koostix are the latest addition to the bill following last year’s concert. “Both The Moggies and Mia and the Moon went down really well at our fundraising event last year and we’re looking forward to adding Koostix to the event in the big top marquee again this year. It’s a great venue, just perfect for an outdoor summer concert.”
The event will also act as a semi-retirement celebration for Rafferty, a Newfoundland breed dog, who has been volunteering with Jerry Green Dog Rescue for eight years.
Rafferty, whose fundraising prowess has helped the charity raise more than £12,000, will soon hand over the reins to Rookie, an eight-month-old Newfoundland who recently started his training at the centre.
Jenny concluded: “All the proceeds will help us to look after rescue dogs in our care before finding them the perfect forever home. Thanks to The Moggies, Mia and the Moon, Koostix and Zara Grey for supplying the beautiful venue and all of her support in this joint fundraising event!”
As this is an outdoor event, guests are advised to wear suitable clothing and footwear and bring a torch for use in the car park. Dogs are welcome.
