A huge thank you to NVS of Stoke on Trent
A huge thank you to Annette and all the team at National Veterinary Supplies. Last week they kindly delivered two pallets of dog food for the greyhounds.
I did it!!! Such a tough day yesterday and I think most people I spoke with had to rethink their expectations and just look after themselves and get through as best they could.
It was truly amazing and the support from everyone in London was incredible - not just spectators, but the hotels, the rail stations, the tube stations. It really was overwhelming how many people were rooting for you throughout the day.
I didn't get the time I was hoping for - 4.59 in the end, but seeing so many runners in trouble I'm just grateful to have finished in one piece. And I did have the best supporters ever - I managed to see Greg and the girls 3 times which gave me such a boost.
The kindness and support of people throughout this experience has been overwhelming. From my trainer (Pete) who has put up with my mini meltdowns and random questions, to Greg and the girls who have supported me through tantrums and endless runs and to my friends and family who have been bored silly by marathon talk for months.
I also want to thank everyone who has donated - friends, family and Greenfield supporters. It's looking like I'm going to have a fantastic total to pass on to them.
Lastly, I have to thank The Stereophonics, Bruce Springsteen, Queen, 21 Pilots and a few others who helped me massively from mile 14 onwards! Sophie even complained I didn't wave at her because I was singing too much 😂
I may now start to see something other than running and marathon talk in my Facebook feed. So to everyone whose lives I've ignored for months, I'm sorry. I may reach a stage of normality sometime next week.
If anyone would still like to donate, I'll leave my fundraising page open for another week.

The wonderful Janet Smith of Congleton has once again decorated her house and garden to raised funds for Greenfields.
Janet raised an amazing £260 for the greyhounds
Thank you so much Janet
Despite it being the hottest London Marathon ever and lots of runners not making it, Mel did Greenfields proud and finished in style. The just giving page will remain open for another week but is currently running at £850.00
As you all know we are a very small rescue with limited time for fundraising so Mel's efforts will make a big difference to all our lovely grey both current and future ones.
Thank you to Congleton Veterinary Centre in West Heath, Congleton for raising an amazing £64 in an Easter raffle for Greenfields

Receiving the cheque from the members of Danesford Obedience Dog Training Club. Agnes, the brindle greyhound in the photo was so well behaved. She look a little interest when all the dogs took part in a fastest recall and seemed to say "I could so give them some tips". She loved all the attention and I think it is safe to say that Agnes is a party girl.
We have received some fabulous donations this holiday season:
A huge thank you to the wonderful Blackpool Fundraisers, Marian, Sandra and Paul, who have been hard at work again and sent us a lovely cheque for £400.00. These people really want to make a difference for greyhounds in need and spend a lot of time and effort raising funds for small independent sighthound rescues.
A massive thank you to Congleton Veterinary Centre in West Heath Congleton.
They held a Christmas hamper raffle and divided the proceeds between Greenfields Greyhound Rescue, Sandbach Animal Rescue and The Dog’s Trust Hope Project,
Greenfields have received a cheque for £50, thank you so much Congleton Vets!
