The seventh Pup Aid event in Primrose Hill was a resounding success this weekend.

Held in a celebratory atmosphere – just a fortnight after the government proposed a ban, known as Lucy’s Law, on third-party sales of puppies and kittens – Pup Aid saw the usual phalanx of celebrities and animal-lovers take to Primrose Hill.

Organiser Marc Abraham said: ”It was absolutely brilliant on so many levels. Turnout was brilliant, the weather was phenomenal.

“It was really celebratory, and I can’t thank everyone who came out enough.”

Marc has been running the event in Primose Hill for seven years and he said it was “bizarre” to hold the event after the campaign had scored such a substantial victory.

He said: “It’s really odd, it hasn’t sunk in and I hope it won’t! Our success shows the things that can be achieved by campaigners in their spare time, hopefully others will be inspired.”
