A major fundraising effort for Newfoundland Welfare is being undertaken in September by Andy Hunter and Simon Carrington in the form of a sponsored bike ride from Lands End to John O'Groats. Andy's much-loved Newfoundland, Brody, passed away just before Christmas last year and this is being done in his memory to help less fortunate Newfoundlands who need the help of the Welfare and Rescue services of the three UK Breed Clubs.
The LEJOG cycle route is more than a 1,000 miles so Andy and Simon are being supported by Steve Ashton in a 'chase vehicle'. We take out hats off to all three and hope that our members and friends will donate generously.
You can find full details of the tour, the planned route, overnight stops and most importantly ways to donate on the web site which has been specially created at https://simon9349.wixsite.com/brody-tour. There will be photographs posted of their training and their progress on the ride.
Can you come out and meet them on the route to offer support and encouragement? Even if you can't, you can still donate!

"Over the years The Newfoundland Club has had many lovely trophies that have been kindly donated to the club. Unfortunately with many changes to Trophy Stewards many of these over time have not been returned.
The committee would ask for everyone to share this with members current and old - we are doing a Trophy amnesty and asking for people to check their cupboards and shelves to see if they have any Trophies that might belong to the Club.
If any are found, please returned them to any committee member at any show or event, no questions will be asked.
It would be lovely if we could find all the missing and unaccounted for trophies."
Newfoundlands can be wonderful companions and as puppies are adorable. However, it is important to know what owning a Newfoundland entails so we have produced a couple of guides which contain lots of useful information and advice. We encourage you to download and read them carefully.Guide for prospective owners Advice for new puppy owners
