It was very inspiring to meet young Alexia Fletton today at the kennels. Alexia kindly presented us at Wimbledon Greyhound Welfare with a donation of £67.52 which she has raised from ‘the Tenner Project ‘ at Sir William Perkins School, Chertsey. This involved Alexia and fellow pupils being given the goal of finding a way of maximising the £10 given and then donating the total, including profit, as a donation made to a Charity of choice.
Alexia did very well indeed and donated her total to us at WGW today, after walking a couple of our hounds.
We are a self funding local charity and it is heartwarming to know that young, aspiring entrepreneurs such as Alexia, show such positive and active support in this way to help our retired racing greyhounds to find their forever homes.
A big thank you from us all at WGW xxx
