WGW Valentines’ Coffee Morning + Nails and Teeth Parlour – 11th Feb

A huge thank you to everyone who supported the WGW Coffee Morning on Sunday and helped us raise the magnificent total of £827.50, plus shop sales £86.00. You were all truly amazing! The sun shone on what was a great day and it was so good to see you all.

It was a grest mix of our dedicated long time supporters and new walkers and hound owners and volunteer helpers and it made for a great atmosphere where we all shared the common goal of helping the Hersham Hounds. That is what we were all there for – and that is what we all – thanks to everyones’ goodwill and generosity – achieved.

I believe this was a record coffee morning total and we are all bowled over by your kindness and generosity towards helping the hounds. We just cannot thank you enough.

This total would of course not have been raised without all the hard work from our special and caring volunteers who were involved in:
• Cake making & selling
• Running a chocolate fountain
• Decorating the tearoom & building a great shop display
• Designing and handcrafting gift cards
• Running a ‘guess the hound’s name’ game
• Donating raffie prizes & Selling raffle tickets
• Clipping hounds’ nails and checking/cleaning their teeth
• Taking photos of the day

And of course special thanks to all of you for being such great supporters or customers for all these services on the day. We couldn’t have achieved this without each and every one of you.

A special thanks to Mrs D Quick for giving £500 from her employer which she donated to Wimbledon Greyhound Welfare and which she presented to us at our Valentines Coffee Morning. Once again, please accept our sincerely heartfelt thanks from myself and all the staff at WGW and on behalf of all the greyhounds in our care.
