Buddy can you spare a dime ... for Buddy

A PARTY had a dual purpose on Saturday – to celebrate the 60th birthday of Jackie Tagoe-Gilbert… and to help pay travel expenses for a six-month-old puppy named Buddy to go to a new home in the UK.

The party at Lapta’s Alvadar bar and restaurant was attended by some 20 people who tucked into food, with many also taking part in a raffle that featured prizes including meal and drink vouchers while stalls sold items and produce to help raise a total of 920TL. Music was provided by DJ Avenger.

Mrs Gilbert, who adopted Buddy, is currently raising funds for the Hope for Pets (H4P) charity which will prepare Buddy’s travel arrangements – but more than £1,000 is still needed.

“For my birthday this year, I'm asking for donations to the H4P who are helping me bring my puppy, Buddy to the UK,” she said. “Every little bit will help me reach my goal and thank-you to everyone who came, those who bought raffle tickets and those who donated prizes for it.”
