Hospices and Guide Dogs benefit from Ludlow Rotary Club’s Dog Day

Ludlow Rotary Club presented cheques totalling £13,500 to Hope House Hospice, St Michael's Hospice and Guide Dogs following the Club's successful 2018 Ludlow fun Dog Day at a reception held at Stokesay Court on 6th December

The presentation to the Club’s three major beneficiaries were made by Rotary Club President, Sarah Lowe, supported by the Chairman of the Dog Day Committee, Rotarian John Wilson.  Each of the recipients explained how the generous donation that they had received would help their charity achieve its aims and the clear benefit it would give to their users.  They each expressed their thanks to Ludlow Rotary Club which, in turn, expressed its thanks  to all those who had attended and supported Dog Day and thus made the donations possible. As well as its own charity, Ludlow Rotary Cares, the Club is committed to supporting the two hospice charities for the next few years through Dog Day.

Stokesay Court has been the venue for Ludlow Fun Dog Day since its inception five years ago and it was by the kind invitation of owner, Caroline Magnus, that the reception was, once again hosted there. Rotarians along with Representatives of the major sponsors were present. The Club was delighted to learn that Hatfields Jaguar Landrover (Shrewsbury), Hobson Brewery and Teme Vets have all committed to sponsoring next year’s event – to be held on 21t July, 2019.
