Women everywhere are urged to clear out their wardrobes as the Retired Greyhound
Trust is calling for donated ladies scarves for a charity sale event at the Spirit
of Summer Fair at London’s Olympia on 16th – 17th May.
Peter Laurie, the Trust’s Chief Executive, explained:
“The Retired Greyhound Trust is dedicated to finding loving homes for greyhounds
when their racing days are over. Last year we found homes for 4,120 ex-racers
thanks to the tireless work of our volunteers and the generosity of our supporters.
We want to help even more dogs again this year, but we really need your help.
“The Spirit of Summer Fair is a really exciting opportunity for us and we are
looking forward to working with The London Ladies Club to raise funds by offering a
range of elegant and beautiful scarves for sale, including some unique vintage and
collectible designs to suit all styles and budgets.”
One long-standing supporter of the Trust’s work is model, actress and singer Twiggy,
who first got involved after helping find homes for brother and sister retired
greyhounds Gracie and Joe. During a recent photo shoot for her ‘Twiggy for M&S
Woman’ collection, she met Monty, a retired greyhound.
“This is such a great cause that is very important to me, which is why I have
personally donated a scarf. I encourage everyone to dig deep into their wardrobes,
and their hearts, and send in any fine scarves they can spare to help the Retired
Greyhound Trust raise funds to rehome these gorgeous dogs.”
To help support the Trust and donate a fine scarf, please send it by 14th May to:
Scarf Appeal, Retired Greyhound Trust, Park House, 1-4 Park Terrace, Worcester Park
