Please remember to send us in a Gift Aid form if you are a regular donator to RRT and also pay tax! An extra 25% is a lot of money for the dogs......
IN GARETH'S WORDS :
So, it's been brought to my attention
that I may have missed my last hair cut or so, and that it is probably
about time I get it sorted out. To this end, I would
like to make a request to all my friends, family and colleagues, and
those reading this website to possibly donate the cost of their next
visit to the barber, salon or pedicure bar to a good cause. My intention
is to raise as much money as possible to donate to the good work being
done by the Rottweiler Rescue Trust, as well as donate the actual hair
to the Little Princess Trust. The RRT is a local rescue that saves and
rehomes abandoned and or otherwise homeless rotties. It is a completely
non-profit organisation and as such, survives off donations and fund
raising. The Little Princess Trust provides real-hair wigs to
boys and girls across the UK and Ireland that have sadly lost their own
hair through cancer treatment. Also a bunch of great stories on their
website. It's well worth a look. (http://www.littleprincesses.org.uk)
The original idea was to only cut it off if I reached a specific
target, but unfortunately, then the LPT may lose out. So I have decided
to do it no matter what total. I am still toying with the idea of
'highest donation chooses the cut', but keep in mind that the idea is
that the LPT get as much hair as possible, so mohawks are pretty much
out of the question. If you would like to take part and donate, please
use the paypal donate button , and to make it easier to track, if you
get the option to add comments to your donation, put either 'haircut',
the style / colour you would request or 'Gareth is a clown' will also
work. Once again, I would just like to reiterate that 100 % of donations
are going to the rescue. (That's the reason I'm not using justgiving -
they take a cut). It's a great cause and every penny is appreciated. In
parting, I've decided to add a few pictures of how long it's got...
Thanks again, Gareth *(If you are a UK taxpayer, I would really
appreciate if you completed the gift aid form (you can get a copy off
the RRT link above), as we get an extra 25%!
Gareth will only cut his hair when the target of £1,000 has been reached!
The running total of money raised for the RRT is now standing at £675! Please also remember that Gareth's hair will be donated to the Little Princess Trust (a donation worth £2,500!!!!).
Although the sun didn't shine down
on us, the show raised an incredible £1,247! Our thanks to the loyal few
who turned up and made it a nice day,our hard working volunteers, all
at Lingfield Lodge and to our super judge Mrs Kay Barton who did us
proud, along with Val Pascoe, who judged the rott parade.
THANK YOU TO ALL
and to Lingfield Lodge vet Clinic and farm for allowing us to use the farm as our venue.
