Open House 4Joy

Fundraising 4Joy

We wanted to do something for this fund which is very close to our hearts as Joy gave such a lot to my brother Alan and his wife Shirley, and was such a fantastic guide dog and companion. As a family we all  miss her too.

We decided to open our house on Sunday 24th November in aid of the 4Joy fund. We had food and drink, items for sale, a raffle as well as a silent auction, and encouraged people to donate to the fund. We were amazed and delighted that a grand total of £625 was raised on the day, with still more to come.

Through sponsorship they raised £1,000 for the 4Pups4Joy Appeal. Thank you to the staff of the vets and everyone who sponsored the crews the money has taken our appeal to just under £14,000.

1st Stratton Cubs

Thank you to 1st Stratton Cubs for raising £726 for the 4Pups4Joy Appeal with their help the appeal now stands at £12,000.

They raised the money through doing different sponsored events: runningthefamilyfunrun4Joy, walkingtheRidgeway4Joy, swimming4Joy, kickups4Joy, scootingtoschool4Joy, cycling4Joy just to name a few events.

Most of the cubs had met Joy when we visited them to do a talk about Guide Dogs and we do appreciate all their hard work and determination.




It is with great delight that I can announce that we have reached an important milestone in the 4Pups4Joy Appeal to raise £20,000.

We have reached the half way point in the appeal by raising just over £10,000 and have Named2Pups4Joy.

The first puppy is being named Joy(of course) and the second one Fletcher.

I would like to say a great big thank you who has generously donated to our appeal and without your help and support we would be a long way from our target.

It is amazing that we have raised £10,000 since August of this year which is far better than I imagined.
