I seem to have caused a lot of trouble……Don’t care…..i’m in a home now….
Canine loving colleagues from Yorkshire Building Society have shown their support for a charity which rescues and rehomes unwanted dogs.
Seven members of the Society’s Service Support team spent two days working with Tia’s Rescue in Halifax.
The building society team helped fundraise in the charity’s shop on Southgate and at Moorside Farm, on Coppy Nook Lane in Cragg Vale.
The voluntary work was part of Yorkshire Building Society’s Actionteering scheme which gives every colleague two days paid leave to help out at a charity or good cause of their choice.
Judith Oldfield, service support team leader at Yorkshire Building Society, said: “Tia’s Rescue is a charity which we have supported for a number of years.
“As well as helping greyhounds, they also rescue and rehome lurchers, care for unwanted horses and donkeys.
“Like many charities they are struggling for funds and volunteers. Thanks to the Actionteering scheme we were able to make a real difference raising money and helping out on the farm.”
Tia’s Rescue’s Moorside Farm is the largest sanctuary of its type in Yorkshire offering a home to up to 100 dogs at any one time.
The charity needs to raise £1,500 each day to keep its services running and relies on donations, grants and volunteers.
Debra Rothery, of Tia’s Rescue, said: “We always struggle for volunteers because of our location.
“It is a fantastic help when we have willing volunteers come and do a couple of days work.”

As most of you will know we have tried our best at the top of this hill, but we have always known that if we are in a more accessible location, then we would rehome more dogs.
We have now sold Moorside and are on with securing a much better/bigger farm where we can reach our full potential.
It is early days yet and we are in the hands of solicitors/planners and the bank…..I am hopeful that it will all go through ok, but you never know.
So until we have signed on the dotted line there is no point saying much else…..Other than…Please keep your fingers crossed……Deb

A very steep learning curve!
Guess you could call it a life changing lesson.
