** DIY and Building Volunteers needed **

Post by Froggie757 » Sat Aug 03, 2019 4:34 pm

Many of you will know Eddie who works tirelessly at the Gatwick kennels and has recently been working pretty much single handedly (thank you Sarah's army and Stuart plus anyone else I have missed off) redesigning and renovating the kennel block. This work really needs to be completed over the summer and before the frosts set in once again. We are appealing for volunteers to assist him for the month of August with the aim of getting this work finished asap to the benefit of all the RR dogs.

If you or a family member can spare a morning, an afternoon or even a full day, preferably Monday - Friday, cos even Eddie needs his days off, it would be much appreciated. Experience is not completely necessary although may be helpful, just a willingness to get involved. There will almost certainly be some heavy lifting, you will get dirty, there will be plenty of tea and occasional cake but there will also be that warm glow of a job well done.
We are asking for a commitment to a particular date just so we don't get 10 volunteers turn up on a single day and then no one for the rest of the summer.

If you or someone you know would like to help then post here or email me at helen@rescueremedies.co.uk and we'll get these dates filled in! :crossfingers.gif:

Thank you everyone it is really fantastic.

SarahK organised a 'band of merry builders to come in early August and they transformed the ruuns of some of the kennels and helped Eddie considerably.

Chris who walks on Fridays has started to help out with the tasks in the kennels 2 days a week and is again a fantastic help to us all making a huge difference.

John Stephson offered us a week this week to do any task we wished.

John has transformed one of the rooms in the house making it perfect for a shrill terrier who wouldn't cope in kennels.
