One of our dotty clients did a Marathon last weekend to raise money for Many Tears animal rescue http://www.manytears.co.uk/ . I am sure they will be very gratefull for everyones donations as they need every penny at the moment. You are not too late if you would like to make a donation, just drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Just a quick email to say thank you to everyone for their support this weekend.
For me the race itself was pure hell. Despite a plan to discuss a number of topics on our run to help pass the time Laura and I were so stressed we barely spoke about anything other than how fast we were running and how rubbish we were feeling. However, Laura did an absolutely fantastic time and I was just relieved to get round.
For me it was definitely one of the best weekends despite the fact that, had I not decided to run for Many Tears, I would have happily pulled out of the race. I am glad I didn't and am very grateful for everyone who has agreed to donate some cash. If you get the time, take a look at the website, make sure though you have tissues to hand http://www.freewebs.com/manytearsrescue/. Clare fosters for Many Tears and when we went to collect Alfie yesterday we met the newest foster dog George. Clare informed me that George has been kept locked up in a darkened room and used for breading for in excess of 7 years. He is covered in lumps and bumps and has problems walking as he has never had any exercise. The most upsetting thing to see was that he just looked like his spirit had been broken. However, many of the dogs that Clare fosters look like this to begin with but each time she manages to bring them out of their shell and put the sparkle back into their eyes. The farm that they think he was rescued from gets closed down on a regular basis but the owners just hide the dogs and start up again elsewhere. Thanks to the likes of Clare, the dogs rescued are brought back to health and placed with loving families.
Have a look at our PETS NEEDING HOMES page to see some more info and a photo of gorgeous George.
Well done Natalie!!
