Phillip to run marathon for GRACE

Kind-hearted Phillip is running the London Marathon in April and he’s chosen to raise funds for our rescue. I’m sure you can all appreciate how running over 26 miles is not easy! Please donate and share if you are able. We are so grateful that he has chosen to support us.

Phillip and Pearl, his gorgeous newly adopted girl. Isn’t she gorgeous!

Moose lends a paw

In between eating treats, Moose has been helping to update our GRACE website. Please tell your family and friends about us, and don’t forget to mention our Facebook page too: www.facebook.com/RescueAGreyhound 

A huge thank you from all at GRACE!

 

Towards the end of the year we received a large, unexpected vet bill. Someone suggested that we put an appeal on our Facebook page to ask if people would consider donating £1 each.

We were blown away by people’s kindness and the appeal resulted in some very generous donations. As a result, you lovely lot raised a total of £3,790. Without your help the vet bill would still need paying.

So on behalf of the hounds and volunteers of GRACE, we just want to say thank you, thank you, thank you! We wish you health and happiness for the coming year.

Thank you Stockton Central Library

Thank you to Stockton Central Library for inviting GRACE founder, Tracy Cook, to be a guest speaker at their regular ‘Books and Banter’ event recently.

Pete and Jen enjoyed their trip out too!

Running for GRACE

Laura and her dad Richard recently competed in the Great North Run to raise funds for us.

They lost their beautiful boy Rodney a year ago and they ran it in his memory. They are absolute stars to do this for us and we can’t thank them enough!

Thank you to The Poplars Care Home

Frosty and Paris visited The Poplars care home in Thornaby recently to collect some beautiful blankets which the residents knitted and kindly donated to the rescue.

Both boys behaved impeccably, made themselves at home and the residents loved them!

A big thank you to Becky and Michele too who went with them.

GRACE at The Pop Up Shop

On behalf of Moose, thank you to everyone who supported us at The Pop Up Shop in Yarm recently.

As well as a guest appearance from Moose, we raised £245 for GRACE.

Plus a special thank you to Kerrie Murray and everyone else who donated the lovely things to sell.

Thank you Greyhound Mommas!

Thank you ‘Greyhound Mommas’ who held a Craft Fair & Coffee Morning event and raised £241.12 for Greyhound Rescue & Co-ordinated Emergencies.  We are so, so grateful!

Greyhound Mommas are a ‘not for profit organisation’ which shares the same passion and love for greyhounds and work hard to raise funds for rescues and charities within the UK.

 

Congratulations on your award Tracy!

Not one for being in the limelight, but GRACE founder Tracy Cook has received an ‘inspirational woman’ award from BBC Radio Tees.

Listen to Tracy’s interview, when they surprised her at work, via BBC iplayer (first aired 08/03/19 @5pm).

  

Huge congratulations Tracy – thank you for all the love you give to the hounds.

And thank you Ann and Ted for nominating her!
