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!)

We have been here nearly 2 years now. This time last year we were in financial trouble. But we got through it. The reason we got through it is because people believe in Tia.

The first grant came from Support Adoption for Pets, £35,000 towards a new kennel block. But as the year went on, we couldn’t find the rest of the money to build it and were in danger of losing the grant.

In stepped an anonymous donor…£48,000..all bills cleared….A glimmer of hope was appearing…

Then came the niece of an old friend who had died. She has funded the rest of the kennel build and the bloody newt survey….A light at the end of the tunnel…

Then in January a couple appeared with a cheque…damn i thought they were coming to foster…Ryves clearly needs a girlfriend…oh well….

Well i had to put my glasses on for that one….I couldn’t beleive it…£100,000…yes really £100,000.

Are you going to pay it off the mortgage? Hell no, we are going to build, kennels, stables, and more kennels.

So on we are ploughing. The kennel block is almost finished, the newt survey is under way and a new stable block on order.We have a bit of money in the bank. It doesn’t last long though. We have outgoings every month of between £30,000 and £40,000…

But we are still here and we have a fantastic team down here too. A bloody fantastic team….

And the icing on the cake…We are now working closely with not only Askern Greyhound Stadium but Stainforth Dog Track too….they also want to now use Tia. So there we have it, that is the reason we moved. We just need to do something more to get these dogs rehomed…

Thanks to everyone. Every penny really does help….every penny….
