We have six Tia fundraising and awareness opportunities in May covering the North, West, and South of Yorkshire. Please could supporters check the Events page on the Tia website, and if able to help, contact the person listed as organiser. More events are being added all the time, and we always need help.

fashion show

 A business that is closing down has donated thousands of pounds worth of designer clothing, mainly dresses from the likes of ‘Lipsy’, Designer Boutique etc. that would be suitable for a day at the races, weddings, proms or some other special occasion.  The ‘models’ are girls who work at Tia in some capacity, they will probably be joined on the catwalk (unfortunate name) by a few of the dogs currently looking for a new home. The event will be a light hearted affair as none of us have ever run a fashion show before so we don’t want it to be too serious.  Dresses etc. will be available to purchase afterwards at greatly reduced prices, we’re also hoping to attract some stall holders to sell accessories on the evening.
The show starts at 6pm, admission is £5 to include refreshments (pay on the door), all proceeds to Tia Rescue.

P1000396P1000404 Last night these two dogs were kicked out of a small white van on a council estate in Balby, Doncaster. It took a “trainer friend” of mine and his wife an hour to catch them. The greyhound girl is in fantastic condition. The lurcher boy, Tyson, is just 4yrs old and is absolutely riddled with cancer. I hope i am wrong, but deep down i know i am not. I’ve seen it too many times. I don’t mind them being dumped, at least they generally get picked up and have a happy ending. Sadly Tyson is not going to have that luxury. Foster home needed please…a very , very short term one where he can be spoiled rotten and not have his last few weeks in a kennel… Fed up…..Deb

This is Tia’s first Spring Fair.

Hatfield Fly Ball Team will be here from 10.30 am with their dogs, and will be carrying out a demonstration that is not to be missed.

The cafe will be open for food and refreshment.

So why not come along for a fun day out, help the greyhounds and make our fair a success.

Hi Debra
Well it is just over 2 weeks until the London marathon, and to date I have raised just over £500 for TIA. My race number is 26,228,  from the green start, so if you want to add this to your web site it might get a few more people to sponsor me. Is has been really humbling getting sponsorship from people I don’t know, but who believe in TIA and what you are doing, and this in itself has really helped me get through the training.  Apparently there is an app you can download that can track specific people, if anybody wants to sit on the sofa eating cake and drinking coffee on Sunday 23rd April and track my progress.  . The race starts at 10 am, and I hope to be running past Buckingham Place by 2 pm.
I will let you know how I get on, and thank you again for putting this info on your website.
Now better head out for a run!!
(We”l be rooting for you Jennifer……..over a large lunch!)
