  1. Sorry not me this year - Ruby and I are heading of to northern England to do a bit of hill walking and cycling (obviously Ruby won't be doing any cycling) Sarah x
  2. Just wanted to remind folks that the 'Give As You Live' is a great option to help raise some funds if you are doing a bit of online shopping this holiday season.... https://www.giveasyoulive.com/ You can get to the Give As You Live website from the SGS homepage (although the weblink is broken) Christmas shopping has started already... Sarah and Ruby xx
  3. I assume the police know about this...story for the newspaper? Sx
  4. This is great news - thanks to everyone who supported this. I assume the charity collection money from the Waitrose in Edinburgh (Stockbridge) came through ok too? Sarah x
  5. Didn't see this last night, but it is available on iPlayer. http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b04q0l0p/panorama-03112014 "Panorama - 03/11/2014 The integrity of greyhound racing has been called into question by a Panorama investigation which has exposed blatant cheating and the drugging of dogs at the heart of the sport. The undercover investigation caught a trainer revealing how he dopes greyhounds in order to effect betting coups - some of which he claims to have paid out up to £150,000. The programme's findings have prompted animal welfare campaigners to call for the government to reconsider the sport's self-regulatory status."
  6. All paid: Confirmation number: 59X23190V7035290P I have PM'd you my address. Best wishes, Sarah
  7. If you can't get anyone else - I can go on Friday afternoon to Newcastle - leaving here about 14:00 so arriving in Newcastle a couple of hours later. Please PM me if you need me to do this. My car isn't fantastic for transport as it is has a rather small back seat, but Ruby fits in fine...but happy to go. Best wishes, Sarah
  8. Hi there - could I please have a red one. They are fab! Thanks, Sarah
  9. Hi there - I am in Stockbridge Thanks everyone that is great news!!! However I am still at work today so can't organise myself in time for tonight as I won't be leaving here for a wee bit yet. But I will PM Fiona shortly as I have some friends who are also having a clear out and I am certain that they will have some duvets/blankets etc and then I can arrange appropriate delivery. Thank you, Sarah
  10. Hello Folks, I was wondering where one could drop-off/send donations for SGS (not the monetary kind). I have a number of items including a lead, a collar, a number of duvets, warm blankets, a dog bowl etc that might be of use to the hounds of SGS. I am having a bit of a clear out and seem to have amassed a number of items that could be re-used. Does SGS hold a donation drop off day? Thanks, Sarah (and Ruby)
  11. Hello folks, I was in Waitrose last night and the totals were in...according to the signage on the wall, Scottish Greyhound Sanctuary should be receiving £280 in due course. Well done everyone for dropping your tokens in the box... Sx
  12. Had a quick look in Waitrose last night to see how the tokens were doing in SGS' box...pleased to report that SGS is showing a healthy proportion of this month's tokens...popped in a few extra ones for SGS this morning... Sarah
  13. Hi all, I will go in to Waitrose after work today and see how SGS is doing in terms of token collection (you can get a rough idea as the boxes are clear and are next to each other) - not sure what this month's other two local charities are... Will report back... Sarah
  14. Hi again, Someone else might have also filled in a nomination form too - there's a few SGS members in Stockbridge, so can't take all the credit. I thought every little bit helps and it only took 15 minutes to fill in the form and write out a paragraph (I just re-worked what had already been written for the website)...I noticed that a few months ago one of the charities was the Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home so I figured SGS had a chance of being chosen...and it was...yeah!!! Not quite sure what happens now though...I had to fill out all the charity details, contact address etc (which I copied from the website)...so I assume they will be in touch some time after the month end. http://www.waitrose.com/content/waitrose/en/home/inspiration/community_matters.html#.UyBhaXeB6Hd Sarah
  15. Hi again, I filled out one of the 'Community Matter's nomination cards a few weeks ago now, (just copied some of the information from the SGS website, included the charity number etc) and returned it to my local Waitrose...and when I was in last week, there was SGS as one of this month's charities.
