Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Greyhound Rescue Wales – giving sighthounds the second chances they deserve.

I loved reading ‘Summer at Conwenna Cove’ and couldn’t resist sharing this blog post by the author about one of the key places in that story – a Greyhound Rescue Centre. Read on to learn more about just such an establishment and delightful news there’s to be a Christmas sequel – I can’t wait to read it!

On Saturday, I attended the Greyhound Rescue Wales Last Hope Spring Fayre in St Athan, where I had a stall to promote the publication of my latest novel, Summer at Conwenna Cove.

The fayre was held to raise funds for Last Hope dogs. Last Hope was a greyhound found left for dead, badly injured and with both ears cut off, on a mountainside in the Rhymney Valley in South Wales. He was discovered lying on rubbish with a hole in his forehead, on 2 May 2004, and was later humanely destroyed. Greyhound Rescue Wales set up the ‘Last Hope Fund’ and holds an annual sponsored walk to raise money for it. This year, they held the spring fayre too. The money raised has been used to rescue, treat and rehome greyhounds or lurchers for whom the only other option would have been euthanasia. Therefore, this fund is extremely important.
