2017 Charity: The Cinnamon Trust

Here is a letter from our 2017 charity, The Cinnamon Trust:

Gill Duroe has forwarded your wonderful donation of £2,000 which is very much appreciated.

I am absolutely delighted you chose The Trust as your Charity of the Year and that your agility show was such a fantastic success! Very well done to you all! Please convey my heartfelt thanks to all the members of Letchworth Agility Club for helping make this gift possible and I hope your four-legged members all enjoy a delicious sausage treat each!

I thought you would like to know that we’re going to use your donation to help pay for a therapeutic laser device that our vet nurses can use for a whole range of geriatric problems that beset our sanctuary residents. It works brilliantly for pain and encourages healing. And, of course, no side effects and an enjoyable therapy for the recipients!

Once again thank you all very much indeed.

Yours sincerely

Mrs Averil R. Jarvis MBE
Chief Executive

Donation to Huntingdon Rugby Club

Following our successful Agility Show at Huntingdon Racecourse last year, the Club donated £500.00 to Huntingdon Rugby Club (our hosts for the clubhouse, ring and camping areas) to be spent on equipment for their youth teams. They have purchased some banner feather flags for their mini age group teams to make it easier for everyone to find the correct age group.

About an Agility Match

An Agility Match is a small scale show, where the entry is limited to the members of the participating clubs – in this case Letchworth, BATS, Milton Keynes and Wellingborough.

As with Kennel Club shows, dogs must be registered with the Kennel Club, although we accept pet names on the entry forms. A dog that holds an Agility Certificate is not eligible for a Match.

There will be two rings: Agility and Jumping. Classes are organised by grade, there being several classes for which each dog is eligible.

Dogs are awarded points for each result in their class; the winning club is the one with the highest points tally.

Wellingborough are the current holders of the Inter Club shield.

Thank you letter from Luna Animal Rescue

Luna Animal rescue would like to say Thank you for the very kind donation we received at your AGM. We were overwhelmed at the support we have received from Letchworth Dog Training Club in the past year.

We have decided as a charity that the funds you raised will be spent on one of our rescue dogs – Mia. Mia was abandoned in a pound in 2016 and was rescued by Luna. After a short while it became apparent that Mia was suffering from some established fear based aggression. Mia has been working on a one to one basis with a behaviourist to begin resolving her issues. Mia is still a way off being able to be rehomed, but with the funding you have provided we hope that we will achieve this soon.

Many Thanks once again from everyone at Luna Animal Rescue for your support.
