Running a marathon!

Oliver Page is running the Brighton Marathon to raise money for Greyhound Trust Suffolk. Have a look at his fundraising page and please do consider donating to support him on his way. You can also read about his inspiration for the run, Sonny at the link.

Olly, you saw something special in Sonny despite his shyness. Thank you so much for giving him the wonderful life he so truly deserved – from all at Greyhound Trust Suffolk.

New Years Day Walk

Unless Government rules change we are still going ahead with our walk on New Years Day. However with the welfare of you all in mind we have decided to cancel the refreshments in the hall after the walk. The booking clerk for the Community Hall has kindly said we can still park in the hall car park so our meeting point remains the same. We will have a short and a longer walk.

Merry Christmas

Charlie (pictured), T.J, Daphne, Master, Mac, Finlay, George, Kieran and Jimbob wish you all a very Merry Christmas and they thank from the bottom of their great big hearts for all of the wonderful gifts you have sent them.
You have really made their Christmas Day and they will be enjoying some of their lovely treats well into the New Year.

All at Greyhound Trust Suffolk would like to take this opportunity to thank you all so much for the support you give us not just at Christmas but throughout the year, for following our page and most importantly for the kindness and support you show to one another via our Facebook page when one of our beautiful hounds crosses the bridge.
What a lovely community.
We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year.

Woodbridge Walk

38 hounds and their hardy families braved near freezing conditions for a beautiful walk along the river at Woodbridge. Kennel dog George (Blue Blazer) came along and managed really well for such a shy little youngster.
Many thanks to the Tea Hut for making us so welcome after the walk
There are many more photos on our Facebook page

Oh Hurricane

It may be a rainy, miserable day today but nothing could dampen Higgins (Oh Hurricane) spirits on this, his going home day.
He was so excited to see his family when they came to collect him. He has come to know them quite well because they have visited him a few times.
He went with much love from us all, some chunks of beef from his Auntie Linda and his packed lunch.
Good luck Higgy Wiggy we hope to see you again soon.xx

Sad News

So sad to report more bad news. We have learned that Tony whose racing name was Seaglass Phantom has crossed the bridge.
Bless his beautiful sweet soul he was only just 5 years old. A real gentleman of a dog who deserved so much more time with his family. They are devastated by his loss and our hearts go out to them.
This is their lovely tribute to him.
“We unfortunately had to say goodbye to Tony yesterday. He had been diagnosed with a blood disorder in May. After numerous treatments at our local vets and Dick Whites in Newmarket he decided He was too good for this world.He was an amazing dog. He was only with us a short while but had taken over our hearts, beds and seatee. Thank you for letting him into our lives. “
It is us who must thank you for giving him so much love and a wonderful home.May his beautiful soul fly high and free. God bless you Tony.xx
