Brody's Tour

Brody's Tour

A major fundraising effort for Newfoundland Welfare was 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 was 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.

Cycle Vest showing the Newfoundland Clubs logos

The LEJOG cycle route is more than a 1,000 miles so Andy and Simon were supported by Steve Ashton in a 'chase vehicle'. We take out hats off to all three and hope that our members and friends will continue to donate generously.

You can find full details of the tour, now successfully completed, and most importantly ways to donate on the web site which has been specially created at Photographs of the tour have been posted on Facebook.

Appeal for the return of missing Trophies

"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."
