Thank you to all companies who have donated items so far for the Bedford river festival stall next month where we will be raising funds for the sanctuary "animals in need", a vegan animal sanctuary in Northamptonshire where I spend most weekends, mostly cuddling lambs but also doing some work ;) thank you to you all for your generosity. The stall will be raising funds for ain and also promoting veganism obviously. Over 300,000 people pass through this event so fingers crossed for a successful weekend! Hope to see you there. X
This photograph shows President Woodrow Wilson's sheep grazing on the South Lawn. Instead of using groundskeepers to cut the grass, the sheep grazed on the White House lawns. The flock grew to 48 at its peak. The wool sheared from the sheep was sold at auction to raise money for the Red Cross.
