A HUGE thank you to all the wonderful volunteers who helped collect at this year’s Wimbledon, to the dogs who put up with lying about, being stroked and having their photographs taken and to the stewards, the AELTC and the Parks Dept. of Merton Council. None of this would have been possible without you.
There’s something special about this event; it’s always wonderful to see someone come in contact with their first greyhound and marvel at how calm and gentle they are or meet up with old friends from the other side of the world, who seem to look forward to seeing the dogs every year as much as they do the tennis!
Over £3,336 was raised, which is an extraordinary sum and just in case someone is reading this who may have been in the queue, taken a flyer and donated money or has come to the kennels to walk a dog, maybe even with a view to homing one someday - thank you. This is why we do it.
Finally, I would like to end by thanking the weather gods for delaying this heat wave until after we were finished!
