An amazing amount raised, thank you everyone for your generosity. A lovely day even if it was a bit chilly, thankfully stayed dry and bright. So many gorgeous hounds coming to visit Santa, thanks to him for taking time out of his very busy schedule and also to Mrs Santa for helping him, some were less keen than others!!

Wow! What a fabulous amount of money raised! It was a really great day. I loved seeing so many lovely Greyhounds come to visit Santa it was fantastic. :)) Thanks to everyone involved with organising the event, I can only just cope with the day to day running of the kennels without lots of extra things to worry about! :)) Xxx

Sending a massive thankyou to everyone who came along to "Santa at Daybreaks" today. Although it was rather chilly, it stayed dry and bright and it was great to see and catch up with so many friends in the sand run. Santa was kept extremely busy - with so many good hounds visiting him that he ran out of presents!!

I must apologise - we came away from the kennels without bringing the cash box from the refreshment table!! So, the following total will change once we can get the cash counted from there, but at the moment, today has raised the phenomenal sum of £707.11 THANK YOU EVERYONE!

Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas - and thankyou again for your support.

Exciting news! Thanks to Spirit & Star, who have very kindly made up and donated some fabulous prizes (although I suspect their Mum & Dad may have helped a bit,lol!!), we will be running a raffle during Santa's visit.

Chocolately goodies & treats for 2 & 4 legs - yay. Huge thanks for their kindness - much appreciated.

Parking is available at the top end of the Birmingham Exiles rugby Club (nearest the A45) - then just walk back up their driveway and the entrance to the sand run will be on your right.

Slight change of plan!!

We have decided to extend the time that the Grand Christmas Raffle will run for, so the draw will now take place at the kennels on Christmas Eve.

Tickets will be available very soon, and with a 1st Prize of £500 cash very generously donated by Fivelands Veterinary Centre, I may be purchasing a ticket or 2!!!

The day just keeps getting bigger!! We will now be joined by Harry's Wardrobe, doggy bandanas & accessories, & JoJo's Jewellery. Great ways to part you from your money whilst you wait to see Santa!!

On that - there is no booking as such to see Santa, but to save you waiting in a big queue we will give you a number on arrival - just like the deli counter in the supermarket!! That way you can enjoy having a browse, and your hound wont miss their chance to see Santa.

Looking forward to seeing lots of friends, both 2 & 4 legged, on the day. xx

Happy to announce that Lucy will be on hand during Santa's visit to capture on film that special moment when your hound meets Santa and receives his gift. Prints will be available to buy from Lucy, more details will follow as we finalise things nearer the time. x
