To Remember Irene

Our dear friend Irene Coles recently passed away and her wishes were for donations to be given to Grande Daze Rescue instead of floral tributes. We are very touched by her kind thoughts and thank Irene for her past support and generosity. For those wishing to give please mark your donation ‘To Remember Irene’ click : http://Paypal.Me/Grandedaze Thank you.

THE YEAR SO FAR

Another month has gone by and we are now looking forward to the better weather. We will post on the website and our Facebook page the date when the hooplah sessions will begin and we’re looking forward to seeing you. We will comply with the prevailing Pandemic regulations at the time of commencement of the sessions. This month we have a story about the bond between pets and those who care for them VOYOU AND COMPANIONSHIP.

During January we have been busy organising new storage for the Bric-a-Brac and re-stocking the on site shop. Very shortly all the mess of getting things ready should be completed. There are lots of wonderful bargains in our Grande Daze re-cycling effort which helps finance the costs of caring for the rescued animals.

Steve at Mange-Tu? in Gorron is kindly allowing us to put our distinctive ‘Purple Van’ in his car park where we will be selling Bric-a-Brac. We are very grateful to Steve for this kindness and hope that you will go into the Mange-Tu? shop to buy English fare or the café for a bite to eat and something to drink when you visit the ‘Purple Van’. LOOK OUT FOR THE DAYS AND TIMES in my next upate.

We hope that you are all safe and well and that we will see you soon.

Best Regards, Anita

2022

HAPPY NEW YEAR!  Peter and I wish you all the best for a happy, prosperous and, most importantly, a healthy 2022.

We start the year with a story about one of the Agility Team THE RETIREMENT OF PIP.  In the coming months our stories will be about our successes and disappointments on the Agility circuit along with information about the rescues and re-homings. Best Wishes Anita.

CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR

“Hello One and All,

Peter and I wish all our clients, supporters and benevoles a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. We have all had another turbulent year and hope for a happy and healthy 2022. Take care and keep safe. Anita and Peter

Thank you to the benevoles

Hello All You Benevoles,

What a phenomenal result we got for the Christmas Fayre and Vide Grenier. A BIG, BIG, well, HUGE THANK YOU to the librarians, the jam makers, marquee squad, sellers, tea ladies, artists, knitters, flyer deliverers, convoy of drivers, poster makers, printers, wrappers, packers and unpackers, website and facebook contributors, furniture movers, toy makers, refurbishers, those who sew and crochet, door personnel and photographers and last but not least the cooks. The sale on the 14th was our most successful ever and it is all thanks to your efforts. All at Grande Daze are very grateful. We go into the winter with confidence that we can care for the animals now in the rescue centre and those we have yet to meet. We look forward to our next get together and hope you will continue to support us. You are valuable to us and we treasure you all.

THANK YOU! Anita and Peter and all of the whoof, whoofs, meows and chirps!
