We send a BIG 'thank you' to 1st Astley Cubs and 1st Astley Gilwell cubs for their recent donation.
Our volunteer Julie, along with her adopted Makants hound Brin, visited the groups recently to talk about greyhounds as pets. The groups then decided to donate their 'subs' to our rescue. Many thanks to them all!
At Makants we're always looking for new ways to raise funds and collecting used stamps has been suggested by one of our volunteers.
If you would like to help us with this please start saving your used stamps (preferably with a border around as shown). Stamps can be handed in at kennels during our walking times 1.15 to 3pm weekdays and 10.15 to 12 pm weekends. Alternatively you may post them to us at the following address:
While we are lucky to have a committed team of volunteers we are always looking for more fundraisers and walkers to join these teams. As the rescue has grown so our running costs have increased too. If you've thought about getting involved but are still undecided now really is the time to take the plunge!
Volunteering doesn't have to take much of your time and we're not expecting regular commitments. Join a friendly bunch and make a difference to the lives of this wonderful breed.
