Latest news - details of our June meeting

All Saints Ladies Fellowship

Our meeting opened in the usual way and we were all sad to hear that we had lost one of our loyal members, Sybil Griffiths. She will be remembered for her kindness and support over many years.

We were pleased to welcome our speaker for the afternoon, a young lady from the Dogs Trust called Ella. She works out of the Loughborough centre, near Wymeswold. This centre has a staff of 38, including a Vet. The building is a converted pig farm which has been made to the very latest modern standards. I have to admit that although I have heard of the Dogs Trust I knew very little about it. However it has been running since 1891 and our local branch has been open since June 2012. They were created to prevent cruelty to dogs and vowed never to destroy a healthy dog. Their famous advert was “ A dog is for life, not just for Christmas” which I am sure you will remember. They now have 20 rehoming centres and handle thousands of strays every year. Ella told us many stories of special dogs she had come across and how they were successfully rehomed and now enjoying life again. The list of treats and pampering for the dogs is endless, more than some people receive!!

The Trust clearly takes a lot of time and care of the dogs to ensure their long term happiness.
It is sad to hear of the bad things people do with their dogs and how many need to be rescued! The Trust also does work in other countries of the world.

Their income is raised by talks such as ours, legacies, and donations, not to mention three big fund raising events each year.
