If you follow our Facebook page, you will have met our lovely Ludo. He's a basset/cocker spaniel cross, and he needs our help. Ludo was recently surrendered to us and is currently in foster. He’s a beautiful boy with a loving nature who just wants to be into everything and anything possible!
Ludo is suffering with entropion. This is a genetic condition where part of the eyelid inverts/folds inward. This causes the eyelashes and hair to irritate and scratch the eyes. Poor Ludo must be in so much pain and discomfort. This can lead to corneal ulceration or perferation and can leave dark scar tissue if left untreated.
Of course we are not leaving Ludo in pain and discomfort and he will have the required surgery on both eyes at a cost of £600-£800 per eye.
Our lovely Jo is running an extra special Bonus Ball event to raise money for his operation, and we only have THREE NUMBERS LEFT!!!
We have 59 numbers between 1 and 59 each at £10 each. The winner will be the bonus ball number drawn by the National Lottery draw on the 20th October.
The winner will recieve a Fire 7 Tablet with Alexa controls, 7” display, 16 GB OR an Amazon Voucher of the same value of £60.00!!!
Payment as always will be by PayPal - firstname.lastname@example.org
PLEASE USE FRIENDS AND FAMILY; if you do not your number will not be allocated.
Please dig deep, Ludo’s eyes need us. We cannot guarantee you will be able to pick your number so if you want to this will be on a first come first serve basis. Please email Jo at email@example.com if you require any further information.
The winner will be announced on our Facebook Page, the link is below.
