Women everywhere are urged to clear out their wardrobes as the Retired Greyhound Trust is calling for donated ladies scarves of all types for an exclusive charity sale event at the Spirit of Summer Fair at Londonís Olympia on 16th Ė 17th May.
Peter Laurie, the Trustís 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 4,120 homes for 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 Trustís 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' clothing line with M&S, 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 KT4 7JZ.
