We'll share as many as we can, and the best one will win our prize pack:

  • Fairly Beloved Rabbit Care T-Shirt
  • Burns Pet Nutrition Pack, including Welsh Meadow Hay, Green Oat Hay, Willow Sticks, and lots more all in a handy canvas bag.


All entries must be received by Thursday 27th September 2012, 22:00 BST, and our winner will be announced by the end of the month.

We are absolutely thrilled to announce that Fairly Beloved Rabbit Care have been accepted to hold a stall at this year’s Royal Highland Show. The show runs at Ingliston, Edinburgh near Edinburgh Airport from Thursday 21st - Sunday 24th June 2012. It is a jam packed event, with plenty for absolutely everyone on display from cattle, sheep, horses, crafts, the world famous food hall, cars, machinery, army displays and more.

Each day, our stall (in 1st Avenue in the Lifestyle Village) will display lots of rabbit welfare information, will have rabbits on show with supervised handling sessions running throughout the day. Our volunteers will be on hand to offer expert advice. Our lucky dip will be running with a chance to win a prize every time.

The Royal Highland Show offers a unique opportunity for us to get our message in front of literally (hundreds of) thousands of people over the four days of the show.

This opportunity is a massive investment for us, and one we’ve not taken lightly. But the opportunity was too good to miss. If we “play it right” it’s an excellent opportunity to raise serious funds for the rabbits, but just as important it is the largest audience we could ever hope to greet with our message for rabbit welfare.

We need you to help make it a success.

  • Come & Visit us at the show
  • We’re looking for volunteers to help man the event. If you can give us some of your time, please get in touch – whether it’s a few hours, a full day, or more.

 

This Saturday Fairly Beloved Rabbit Care is holding our awareness stalls at two local events.

Our first stall is at Torwood Garden Centre, Larbert. This is a family run garden centre offering a fantastic range of garden plants, gifts, furniture, pets and aquatics, and also hosts "Blossoms" bistro - a popular local eating place in its own right. With information and advice from our FBRC experts, and the chance to meet a Continental Giant rabbit, this is an excellent opportunity to learn a little more about the work that we do.

At the same time, a similar display of information & advice is on show at Neilston Cattle Show and Sheep Dog Trials, featuring our long term fosters Fifi & Belle who are both longing for their forever home. Also at the show are a wide range of farm animals including sheep and cattle, horses & equestrian activities, dog trials and much more - a real family day out.
