Fundraising

As an independent charity we rely on donations and fundraising activities to continue our work and look after the retired greyhounds in our care. There are several ways people can support our charity, these are outlined below.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions relating to fundraising: info@retiredgreyhounds.co.uk. Thank you – we truly appreciate your support!

Thank You’s

And while we’re saying thank you, we would like to say a big THANK YOU to Beacon View Vets in Eastry, who collected Christmas goodies for our kennel dogs from their clients. The hounds got spoilt and we very much appreciate it! A huge Thank You to all the staff at Beacon View Vets in Eastry and their clients!!!

We would like to thank Pets at Home Foundation and the Pets at Home stores in Ashford and Sittingbourne for their continued support and especially for their donations received from the recent Valentine’s Week appeal.
 
We are pleased to announce that we are the chosen charity for both Ashford and Sittingbourne Pets at Home stores and we are now able to restart the greyhound awareness days and fundraising in-store as of 1 April 2022. We are aiming to be in Ashford on the first Saturday of each month, starting 2 April from about 10am. Our facebook page will remind you of the dates!
 

Regular or one-off donations

You can donate money directly into our bank account, either by sending a one-off amount or by setting up a standing order to donate to us regularly.
