There have been some lovely people/companies that have helped me along the way and they deserve their very own thank you page !

My very first huge project  was to raise funds for buying some individual kennels, I have been blown away by how many people have got involved with this and how many people have given donations and each and everyone of you needs to be mentioned and thanked…

Firstly, a wonderful company called LIFE IRRIGATION  DSCF4562 donated all the materials and workmen to lay my foundations, lay my concrete base and supply me with running water, this amounted to A VERY SUBSTANTIAL amount of money and I cannot thank Ronen and Gill Orr (owners) enough for this wonderful practical contribution…

Secondly was Lord and Lady Salisbury who donated a very generous amount of money which has enabled me to purchase outright one of the lovely chalet type kennels that you see featured on my home page and it has been erected in memory of their beloved lurcher JUDE… The company I brought my kennels off, DUCHY FARM KENNELS have given me a wonderful discount on one of the kennels and  very kindly delivered  and installed the  kennels, free of charge…!!! Finally Steve at Norbury Fencing in Hertford, gave the rescue a very generous discount to enable us to buy the fencing materials…THANK YOU SO MUCH !!

 

The following people have made personal donations to the kennel fund  and without them I wouldn’t be in the position I am now. I am extremely grateful as I know spare money in this current climate is very hard to come by and I have been overwhelmed by the support, thank you very much to the following people….Tess Brown, Jean Peters, Helen Starbuck, Amanda Westhead, Linzi Tropea, Marianne Hills, Sarah Brunning, Jo Skirrow, Gill Robinson, Jacqueline Baker, Jess Michael, Lisa Gates, Lily Bear, Tia/Miley Wheeler, Angie Paterson, Sandra Monk, Anita Musk, Elliot Gay, Frances Gillies, Janie Simmonds, Shaine/Rob Macinnes, Sarah Milner, Lyn Odgers, Carol Jones, Christine Pate, Vicky Strickland, Hanna Vartiarnen, Annette Connor, Niki Armstrong, Sarah Bolger, Sarah Milner AGAIN, (x)  Derek Ewart, Tracey Field, Gill Prosser, Alison Derrouiche, Angie Paterson AGAIN (x), Marion Kitchener (my mummy xx) Helen Gates and her colleagues at EQUISENSE, Niki Noo, Geraldine Anderson, Allison Derrouiche AGAIN (x),  Sarah Milner FOR THE THIRD time (xx), Lorn Wilson , Jaci Read for donation of usage of a trailer and a large amt of bark, Jacqueline Horton, Johanna Woolcock Purnell.

When I didn’t think things could get better and I had my two wonderful kennels up and running,  two

A wonderful lady all the way from FINLAND called Hanna Vartiainen who runs a dog association HH logo tekstilla

 HurttaHelppi (HoundHelp) contacted me as she has a passion for lurchers and wanted to assist, her wonderful association sponsored all the materials/installation of the electrics and lighting for the kennels and the area…The lurchers now  have heating for the winter months and are so very cosy !!!

I AM OVERWHELMED and VERY GRATEFUL for  these two wonderful charities/associations for helping me so much.

 

 

Finally to do with the kennel project, I have been very blessed to have a lovely couple in my life, Mike and

Mike working away....

Mike working away….

Lynda Rowland, who made a huge donation to purchase all my fencing materials. Mike  in his very busy life has given up hours of his time, to come up and put all the fencing up and do so many other DIY chores that I would struggle to do, in all, he has been my RIGHT HAND MAN and I am eternally grateful for all his hard work and time donated. Very sadly since the kennel project has finished, his beautiful wife Lynda lost her fight to cancer and her memory will live on with this kennel area.  Heaven has gained another shining star and myself and the lurchers will never forget her generous donation and her wonderful warm and caring nature….
