Lots of New Events for 2017

Saturday 18th March - Meet and Greet - Pets at Home - Byfleet KT14 7NP

From 10am to 4pm (or thereabouts). Contact Denise at the kennels if you are able to come along with a hound for this event.

Sunday 26th March - Mothers Day

From 11am to 2pm all welcome. Cake and Coffee Morning at the kennels with raffle.

Saturday 1st April - Quiz Night - Ashford, Middlesex

We are arranging a Quiz Night in aid of Wimbledon Greyhound Welfare on Saturday, 1st April at St. Michael's Church Hall, Ashford, Middlesex, TW15 2QD (the usual place for those who've attended previously). Doors open 7.00pm for a 7.30 start.

The theme this year will be English Night (well we've had Italian, American, Welsh and French nights). The meal will probably be M & S sandwiches, pork and apple pie or quiche with pickles, Victoria sponge and tea and coffee plus nibbles, all for a ticket price of £10. Fancy dress is optional! There will also be a raffle. Bring your own alcoholic drinks.

Teams can be any number (within reason) and if you want to come as an individual or couple we will be able to fit you into a team, probably with people you know. Bookings to johnhigham1@live.co.uk Let us know how many vegetarians are in the team (not vital but we just need a rough idea).

Always a brilliant and very popular evening - so book early and don't miss out.

To get to the kennels - Google Map

Wimbledon Greyhound Welfare is an independent charity devoted to caring for retired racing greyhounds and finding them homes. We are self-funding and rely on the kindness and generosity of our supporters and the general public.

We care for approximately 80 greyhounds at our kennels in Hersham, and the majority of these are gifted into us by their owners or trainers once their racing days are over so that they have the opportunity to experience life as a family pet.

We actively promote the fact that greyhounds make wonderful pets and adapt to life after racing very well. Enjoy your trip round our website but better still come to our kennels and meet the stars of this particular show.



 Please consider using Gift Aid when donating.

Wimbledon Greyhound Welfare, being a charity in its own right, is now able to claim Gift Aid on all donations.
