Greyhound and Lurcher Rescue

September 2019   

Dawgust Total -  £10,992.10

8 September 2019

Greyt night at the bingo tonight and, although it was less well supported than it has been in the past, in excess of £500 was raised for our Dawgust appeal which Colin matched, bringing the total to well over £1,000. I'm sure someone will be along with the exact figures soon and, in the meantime, I should like to thank Colin, on behalf of Bristol DAWG, for that incredibly kind and generous gesture. The evening was further enhanced by a visit, on her birthday, from our longtime supporter Suus Knoops all the way from the Netherlands - the cake was lovely 😉 Thank you to everyone involved in organising the evening and everyone who came along to support it.

In its second year, Woody's Memorial Walk was well supported again and raised £300 for Dawgust, which was added to the proceeds of a raffle held by the walk organiser, Jayne Hemmingsley bringing the total up to almost £600. 

The walk turned into a social occasion as the participants tucked into cake, tea, coffee and soft drinks afterwards. 

Our thanks go to Jayne for organising the walk and Jess and her sister for serving the refreshments.

Gerry has done the official counting of the money for the Skittles Evening and £261 was raised for the DAWGUST Appeal.

Really enjoyable evening, lots of banter and laughter, absolutely brilliant. Think we may well do this again, as people seemed to enjoy themselves.

Thank you Julie and Adrian Sims for sorting the food.

Well, here we are over a third of the way through September and Dawgust has just come to an end with a super Quiz Evening organised by Ian Jones at the Angel, Long Ashton. It was very well supported, with loads of DAWG people attending, making it a greyt way to end our special fund raising initiative. £404 was raised to help the hounds and everyone at DAWG would like to thank everyone involved in the organisation and sponsorship of this event.

OK everyone you are all probably fed up with seeing the word "DAWGUST" now, as August now seems to run into September, but organised events have now come to an end.

Once again this year we have had amazing support to try and help our very good friend Eila Moloney in Ireland and the money which has been raised will make such a huge difference to the amount of dogs she can help. So to every single one of you who donated, attended or organised an event, give yourself a big pat on the back as you have made a difference to a dog needing help.

There is still some money to come in, but we are nearly there and hope to have a final figure towards the end of the week/early next week.

At Bristol DAWG we are so lucky to have such a wonderful group of people supporting the work we do.
