Newcastle Greyhound Stadium gets a visit from the Foundation

13 December 2014

Foundation volunteers present trophy at Newcastle Greyhound Stadium

Every dog has its day and on Saturday 13 November we were invited into Newcastle Greyhound Stadium to sell our Car Raffle tickets. The Stadium accommodated us wonderfully and they created extra fun by naming the second race of the night the ‘Alan Shearer Trophy.’ Our volunteers Beth Pounder and Jack Armstrong then got the opportunity to present said trophy to the winning dog. The dog that won was called Acapulca Diva and was trained by Debbie Calvert. Big congratulations to them.

The crowd atmosphere was great and it was all looking very Christmassy in the Stadium – especially with the bar staff sporting some very colourful festive jumpers!

Hylton Marrs, Sales and Marketing manager for the Stadium said; "The Alan Shearer Foundation is a great cause to support and we are delighted to be able to help."

At the end of the night we came away with our tails wagging having raised £230 for the Foundation. A huge thank you to all that supported us by buying a raffle ticket on the night and big thanks to all the employees at the Stadium.

If you want a chance to come away as top dog, winning a car and a year’s free insurance, there is still time to enter our draw. But be quick, the closing date is 24 December.
