Asda Charity Tokens

Tia have been entered in to their charity draw, along with two other local charities running from the beginning of October for three months. Customers vote for their favourite charity by depositing tokens (available from checkouts) into the relevant box.  At the end of the three months the charity with the most tokens receives £500, the other two receive £200 each.

Great way to support Tia if you are local.


Pet Portraits from Alan Hall.

Portraits (2)Portraits (1)   When Wendy and Alan moved to France, a few other greyhound charities wouldn’t let them have any dogs because they couldn’t do a home check. They have had 4 dogs from us now….and we have been in touch ever since….and that does include them peeping through the gates here at Mill Race whilst it was empty and reporting back. They were in the area!! They also did some covert operations here, when we had moved in…..and took pictures of Chester and Millie without me knowing… So when they appeared last Xmas with this, i was in tears….. I have had quite a few portraits done over the years, this is by far the best and i would recommend Alan without hesitation…. One day we will do that home check…..quite fancy a holiday in France…..Deb

The picture is here at Tia if anyone wants to come and see it, i’m afraid my photo doesn’t do it justice….

Kennel update.

As we are having to use the old barn again this winter we need to make it as warm as possible.

Has anyone got any heavy duty rolls of plastic or tarpaulins they don’t need. Or know anyone who makes them.

We need around 60 metres long x 4 metres wide…

We will be putting them on the top of the kennels.

We also need a load of pallets to raise the beds up off the floor…..We can collect…

It’s like being back in Sowerby Bridge behind the tip…..


Good news is, the horrible green kennel block is due to be demolished/taken down carefully at the end of October and a new one put up. So we will need foster homes for a month in November…..Just a month then they can come back….
