Greenfields Annual Sponsored Walk
Tittesworth Water Visitors' Centre
Meerbrook, nr Leek
11am - 13.30pm
It's coming up to that time again folks! Our lovely sponsored walk will once again be at Tittesworth Water Visitors' Centre, Meerbrook.
We always have good weather, so come along for a natter, refreshments, opportunity to start buying your christmas presents (!), oh and of course a lovely walk with the hounds around the reservoir!

Despite it being the hottest London Marathon ever and lots of runners not making it, Mel did Greenfields proud and finished in style. Melanie has raised £1044.60, an amazing amount!
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 greys both current and future ones.
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.
Love Mel xxx
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.
Cut off the bottom of the sponsorship form, display it on your windscreen and you will be able to park for £2.50 (put the money in the machine on the car park, this is considerably cheaper than the usual rate for parking)
Once again we need to say a very big thank you to our wonderful team of fundraisers in Blackpool, Marian, Sandra and Paul, who have been hard at work and sent us a cheque for £500.00.
Marian, Sandra and Paul have provided all the funds needed to help the five greyhounds who were retired and still living in kennels. Cara and Jenny have already found homes, Declan is with us and currently looking for a home and the two girls who are due to come to us at the beginning of September.
If you would like to support these dedicated people please have a look at the items on ebay for seller "chiefdogwalker" and help a greyhound as you shop.
