Hugh’s Christmas Tree Topper Challenge In Aid Of The Dogs Trust #Charity – The Results

A massive thank you from Angela, Toby and I.  Once again, you guys came up trumps and I am delighted to inform you that I have donated £250 to the Dogs Trust.


Angela may have now been packed away for another eleven months and the house may be looking very bare with all the Christmas decorations having come down, but the blogging community continue to shine a light and make these dark Winter months bright and beautiful.

Good Night from Angela

Without further ado, here’s the list of everyone that participated in Hugh’s Photography Challenge for week 8.  I’m sending a virtual hug to everyone of you for helping us raise money over the Christmas festivities. Please take a bow.  You have all given a homeless dog a meal and may even have found a few of those dogs a new home. Thank you all so much.

However, there were also entries on Twitter and Instagram, so a big thank you to all you people as well.  I’d also like to thank everyone who reblogged the post and shared it on Social Media. I didn’t tell you this, but I also donated £1 for every reblog and for every entry and share on Social Media.

My thanks also to everyone who informed me that they had made a donation to the Dogs Trust. Your donation is very much appreciated and will go a long way in helping some of our less fortunate four legged friends. You can still make donations by clicking the link below.

    1. No worries, Nick, I’ll be running the challenge again in December and your mum entered both last year’s and the year’s before challenge. In fact, that is how she first discovered my blog.
      Good on you with sponsoring, Zeb. I hope you get updates on how Zeb is doing? That’s a cool name for a dog.

  1. Hugh, this is such a wonderful effort and I loved the creativity of it, using bloggers to post their photos. Down herein Mexico, there are causes for the poor abandoned Baja dogs that abused or just let loose to fend for themselves if the owners don’t want them anymore. Thank you for bringing awareness to others and for donating on behalf of God’s creatures.

    1. The pleasure to host the challenge and donate to charity was something that I hope will remain with me until next December when I launch the next charitable Christmas challenge, Terri. Thank you for participating in the challenge and helping it be the success it was. Without generous bloggers like you, it would never have even got off the ground.

  2. Oh, Hugh! I am so happy to have shared in your Christmas joy. This was such fun and I loved all the trees and decorations. I have something special lined up for you next year, so we must do this again! I wish I could come to Wales and just hug you to pieces!!! 😀 ❤

  3. Thanks, Hugh, for doing this–both for our canine friends and for those of us who got to see each other’s tree pix. You were most generous. Sorry. I cost you a pretty penny with my Xmas Topper excesses. Happy New Year. Judy

    1. Thank you so much Sally. Thank you as well for nominating The Dogs Trust to be the beneficiary of the Christmas charity challenge. It was such a great idea and we are all delighted that you nominated them.
      Massive hugs from Toby and I.

  4. Congratulations Hugh on such a successful challenge. Thank you so much for organising such a wonderful and worthy event. You did us all proud by raising so much money for the Dog’s Trust! A huge hug back to you 🙂
