This year has been, undoubtedly, the hardest year Jerry Green Dog Rescue has faced as a charity, in their nearly 60-year history. The projected financial loss due to the implications of the pandemic is simply devastating.
Fundraising Team Leader, Alex Drewett, said;
“Even though all prospects of community fundraising have completely gone this season, Jerry Green’s are determined to make Christmas magical.”
“The dogs need us, and we need you! So please join us this festive season and help us raise the funds that we so desperately need, to be able to continue to be there for dogs who have nowhere else to go.”
“A nation in lockdown does not mean a nation without kindness, Christmas wishes, entertainment and shopping!”
