SGS Christmas Can collections - Inverness

Recommended Posts

Yes its that time of year again :eek: we are planning out Christmas can collections. :723[1]:

As always this is a really big fundraiser for us and sets us up for the year to come. We are organising things slightly differently this year however, just having one day instead of the whole weekend to try and maximise bodies and collections. 

For Inverness it will be Saturday the 9th of December, meeting place to be confirmed.

If you would like to volunteer please post below, PM myself or email us on info@scottishgreyhoundsanctuary.com with one of the following time slots; 

11am - 1pm / 1pm - 3pm / 3pm - 5pm (please note that the time slots may be subject to change)

Hounds are of course welcome and the fancier they are dressed the more attention they attract. :704[1]:

Sorry can't make the Inverness one this year - shame as I enjoyed it & the dog loved the attention!  May I suggest this time though that you have banners or something easily visible as we rather faded into the background last time.

I can do any afternoon/evening slot.  Yes, like janm said, it would be much better if we had some banners this year so make us more visible!

Great thanks. Your both right it would be great to have all the banners and things in Inverness the same as we have in Glasgow but it's not always possible to get things up there

Is there any way the banners could be collected/returned?  I would be happy to meet someone somewhere if it's at all possible!

Please note that the date of this has now changed to the 9th of December. Also you will have your very own SGS flag banner

Probably meet at the Unicorn, but you would be free to move around during your slot

I can do the first one at 11am but unfortunately won't be able to bring a dog with me this time.  I'll see if I can borrow one (or maybe two) from someone for the day.

Sorry not me - it would mean a long drive home in the dark & I don't like driving in the dark!

Dress rehearsal for the can collection - not looking very impressed, but the hats will also keep their ears warm :rolleyes:
