We are very grateful to many supporters who work hard throughout the year fundraising for GIN but we are always in need of more helpers. If you feel you can organize an event, have a table at a car boot sale, organise a street / store collection, sponsored walk please contact us. We can provide literature to display and some merchandise to sell.
We can promote these events on our main charity website, Facebook and Twitter pages and do mailshots to supporters in the area to encourage support.
These events are very important for the charity as they not only raise much needed funds but they raise awareness of our work and the plight of the galgos. It is also good for the charity to have new members join us, often after they have picked up literature at an event they want to help, and some people have gone on to adopt one of our galgos.
We would normally be writing now about the various events being organised around the country to raise funds for GIN and to raise awareness of the plight of the greyhounds and galgos.
We held a meeting earlier this year to discuss some new events we hoped to attend and started to make some enquiries. Sadly the coronavirus pandemic has meant that many events have had to be postponed or cancelled.
We cannot say if events planned for later this year will be able to go ahead. We will continue to keep our website, Facebook and Twitter pages up to date with any news of these.
One event I feel I must mention was to be held at Buscot Park, Oxford on the 6th September. Buscot Park is a National Trust property but is the home of Lord Faringdon. He had kindly asked us if we would like to hold an event there on the closed weekend. We were thrilled to be asked and had already started to make plans but at the moment I can only say that the date is “pencilled” in. We hope the situation will be better for all of us by September so please keep a lookout on our site and social media for any news on this and other events we, and those who support us, are able to organise.
We would like to thank all of our supporters who regularly hold car boot sales, run stalls at events, organise street and store collections, dog walks, talks, empty collecting boxes etc. Many of you have told us that your event has been cancelled. Hopefully once the crisis is over we will all be able to organise events again. Please let us know if/when this becomes possible for you and let us have details and we will be able to advertise these on our site.
Sponsored events can be added to our Justgiving site making it easier for people to sponsor on-line
Our Facebook page receives many “likes” and events can be placed on there to attract more visitors/sponsors. http://www.facebook.com/greyhoundsinneed
