Come on down to Mutt Fest!

Local lady Susan Matthews has been in touch to ask if I’d let you readers know that there’s a great music and entertainment charity event coming up a week on Saturday (6th September 2014)  at the Shoulder of Mutton pub in Church Road in Brownhills.

There will be live music, food, raffle and a bouncy castle for the kids. This is a popular pub going from strength to strength in the last 12 months and this charity event will be well worth checking out.

If anyone has a band list they could send me, that would be ace, cheers.

Susan has also tipped me off about some other local charity events that went on last weekend at Wilkinson and Tesco – it’s great to see these big-name stores working for the local community and I know Wilkinson in particular have been very active for local charities in the past, and continue to do so.

Hi Bob

Could you advertise please?

I write to make you aware of our amazing little town Brownhills. Last weekend alone our fabulous Wilkinson store had one of its employees cycling away to raise charity funds for the Midlands Air Ambulance, and our Tesco store was raising money outside its doors for Diabetes UK.

Also, one of our small local pubs has taken on the challenge of hosting a small festival called ‘Mutt Fest’ – Purely non profit split between NMC (Neuro-Muscular) and Stacey Coley Leukaemia, which are very dear to their hearts.

Whilst Tesco and Wilkos have held their charity events last weekend, Mutt Fest will be held on Saturday, 6th September  2014 from 2pm onwards featuring live bands, a raffle, bouncy castle and various food stalls.

This is a non-profit event and all proceeds go to the chosen charities.

I’m hoping as this is such a small town with such a big heart that maybe you could run a story…

Wilkinson have a town charity fund whereby it donates goods to local businesses for chosen events.

Please contact me Suzie Matthews on 07743304340 for more information.


Thanks to Susan for the tipoff – always welcome.

Please remember I’m happy to advertise any local events here, charity or otherwise. Please do drop me a line with details of anything you’ve got going on to BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com. Cheers!

If anyone with any further details of Mutt Fest could contact me, that would be ace too.
