Flint RNLI announce winners of annual dog show
Flint RNLI volunteers were treated to a cuteness overload while hosting our annual dog show virtually.
The online event launched on 4 July, allowing dog owners a week to enter their furry companions with prizes up for grabs for first, second and third places courtesy of our sponsor Jollyes Petfood Store Flint.
Having received over 60 entries, our show coordinator Stuart Gunter had the difficult decision of selecting this year’s winners.
Flint RNLI Fundraising Secretary, Samantha Morton-Roberts said: ‘We are very grateful to Jollyes, our local supporters and judge Stuart Gunther who continue to support our annual dog show. We wanted to continue our event to reflect on the traditions of our previous dog show and open day events and we hope to host it back at the lifeboat station in July 2022.’
