October has started off with another big bang!
The team have been out collecting again, over the first weekend in October, this time at Redfields Garden Centre. Throughout the weekend the team spoke to a lot of new people, even some previous homed greyhound owners came along to say hello and catch some sneaky greyhound cuddles!
Over the two days the team raised £593.07 for the greyhounds in our care, as well as promoting greyhounds as pets and the work we carry out as a charity.
Well done everyone and especially the stars of the show – Isaac, Hope, Izzy, Razzle, Reggie, Ice, Kara, Sparrow, Hammy, Arty and Ferret.
Thank you also to everyone who came along to support us and all of your donations. A big thank you to Redfields Garden Centre for having us over the weekend and making us feel very welcome.
Kennel Opening Hours:
Please note all volunteers (kennel hands included), visitors and customers must pre-book visits to our site which will involve bringing a non-resident dog on site.
We are asking for at least 24 hours’ notice of your dog’s arrival, details of the day/time you wish to bring your dog(s) and how many dogs you propose to bring. We will endeavour to give you a suitable appointment time, but please appreciate that we can only be as flexible as our lease permits and you may be offered an alternative time/day instead.
You can pre-book your dog’s visit by:
Email to firstname.lastname@example.org, by text or phone to 07828 138378 (Marie) or 07769 348310 (Lucy).
The above pre-booking applies to visiting dogs only.
Volunteers and customers without dogs joining them are welcome during opening hours as per normal. Viewings remain by appointment only as previously.
Please come along and join us, at one of our fundraising/awareness events. There will be plenty of greyhounds to have a cuddle with too!

Bedding: Thank you for your donations, we are now full up again and we will update this page when we can accept more bedding.
Toys: If you have any soft toys that we could use for the kennel dogs we would be very grateful as our stocks are very low.
Ink Cartridges: Please save your empty cartridges, bring them along to the kennels so we can recycle them and make money for the dogs in our care.
Car Boot Items: Thinking of having a clear out before Christmas? We would love to have your spare items so we can raise additional funds for Greyhound Lifeline. Please bring them along to the kennels and we will be very grateful for them.
Street Collections: If you live local and are already one of our volunteers wanting to support us through fundraising events please let us know. We have a number of collections this year and are always looking for helpers. Some of our collections are permit limited but a bank of fundraising volunteers is always welcome.
Please let us know by emailing us at email@example.com and include your full name, contact number and your availability.
