Our Car Boot Team Need Your HELP!

Car Boot Fundraisers Need HELP!

Our fundraisers are preparing for the ‘Car Boot Sale’s’ to start up again.  We are hopeful that it will be in the next couple of weeks.

Our Car Boot Team.

Whilst we have been in Lockdown the duo have been sorting out the stock they have for these car boot sales.  They now need your help, as stock is running very low and they are keen to attend as many car boot sales as possible.

Below is a list of items that they CAN sell really quickly, in order, for those pennies to keep coming in:

Jewellery (real or costume) includes broken gold/silver etc.

Watches (pocket’ wrist’ working or not)

Kitchen small appliances & kitchenware

Small Electronics

Phones, Cameras and Laptops

Tools (garden or DIY) & Garden Ornaments

Boxed Games, Jigsaws & Children’s Toys

Smellies (boxed or single)

Cigar boxes & Brass items

Dog leads, collars, toys, coats etc.

Please NOTE there are some items that the team CANNOT accept, these are:
Clothes
DVDs & CDs (not Videos)
Books (Children’s & Adults)
Videos

Sparko loves the toys that you help raise funds for.

HOW TO DONATE YOUR ITEMS:

If you have any items that you are able to donate or if you unsure if your item can be used please email the couple on atc86@hotmail.com.  They will answer your email as soon as possible.  The couple will inform you where you can drop off your donations or if local they may be able to collect from you.

WE CANNOT ACCEPT ANY CAR BOOT ITEMS AT THE KENNELS; UNLESS IT HAS BEEN SET UP AS A MEETING PLACE FOR THE TRANSFER OF YOUR GOODS. THIS CAN ONLY BE ARRANGED THROUGH OUR FUNDRAISERS (CAR-BOOT TEAM) OR THE KENNEL MANAGERS.

PLEASE DO NOT DROP ITEMS OFF AT THE KENNELS, IF YOU HAVEN’T ALREADY SPOKEN TO OUR CAR BOOT TEAM.  WE ARE UNABLE TO TAKE IN YOUR DONATIONS, AT OUR CENTRE, DUE TO COVID RESTRICTIONS.

Support the Car Boot Team:

Go, grab a bargain at Mytchett Car Boot Sale – every Saturday morning and say hello to Adrian.  This dedicated couple are hardworking and give up their time to support Greyhound Lifeline.

The team are keen to begin their ‘Car Boot Sales’ again, after such a long time without fundraising for the kennels.  They are confident that they can bring in some much needed funds to help care for the greyhounds in our care.  Once they can start attending again, you will be surprised how quickly they can turn ‘unwanted items’ into cash for our greyhounds!

Nacho loves his new boots that you helped raise funds for.

We thank you all for your support during this difficult period, every donation sold will continue to support the greyhounds in our care.

Supporting Greyhound Lifeline:

 

It has been a difficult couple of years for all charities, due to COVID and yet we, like many others, have continued to receive greyhounds after they have finished their racing days.  We have been very limited to funds due to not been able to fundraiser, either through street collections or our car-boot team.  We have been very fortunate to have supporters who have helped us through this difficult time, with donations of dog food, bedding, toys, gifts for the kennel hands, sale of food and goods and monatry funds too, which we are very grateful for.

If you would like to support the work that we carry out, knowing 100% of your donation will be spent on the care and welfare of our kennel greyhounds then please consider being a ‘Friend of Greyhound Lifeline’.  Click on the link to find out more about this scheme.

We have a range of other ways to support our work which are all really quick and easy to do.  Click on the link to find out more – How To Help Us.
