Vice Chairman of Trustees of a Registered Charity. We rescue, rehabilitate and re-home ex racing greyhounds.
My talk explores the history of greyhounds, how they came to England, their place in English culture. Also the impact of the racing industry had and is still having on the breed. Then explain the work of the Fen Bank Greyhound Sanctuary, where, how and why we do it.
I am happy to be accompanied by my greyhound but can also speak alone. A Q&A session after my talk is always welcomed. Normally my talk last for between 45-60 minutes.
Have spoken to such groups as WI's, Probus, Round Table, Rotarian, Youth organisations and Schools.
