Veterinary group CVS has presented £15,000 to the Retired Greyhound Trust (RGT) following a year of fund-raising among its practices across the UK.
A national charity, the RGT is dedicated to finding loving homes for greyhounds when their racing days are over. It operates a network of more than 70 branches across Britain, run by volunteers.
CVS chief executive Simon Innes said: “This year’s fund-raising has been particularly successful and the range of events run by our staff shows ever-higher levels of creativity, with cakes a particular theme.
“We perhaps have Mary Berry to thank for the fact a number of practices organised their own bake offs and our support office in Diss, Norfolk, took this one step further by organising themed baking weeks. As I’m based in Diss I can confirm the contributions brought in for Savoury Week and Chocolate Week were to a very high standard.
“The RGT does fantastic work and we’re delighted to help them with this significant donation.”
