It IS intended to run an auction on ebay to compliment the Fundraiser. Auctions need items so what has anybody got that they are willing to contribute? It would be nice if a Glen of Imaal Terrier could be featured in every item somewhere as the whole idea is to raise money for the PRA Fund but if you have something that you think may raise a few pounds that isn’t Glen related it doesn’t matter….we’ll still take it!
The hanging basket already has an offer on it but we’d like more. It came courtesy of Dobbies Garden World is from their premium range & would have cost £39.99 to buy so you aren’t speaking of a little ten inch basket with a couple of plants!
The Glen Championship Show at Grenoside, Sheffield tomorrow has an entry of 49 for judge Allan Stephenson. There is eye testing in the morning so anybody signed up do remember to take the Kennel Club registration documents of the animal to be tested!
There will be Glen things to buy, which will maybe help a few Christmas present ideas, but more importantly there will be “PRA slogan” articles for sale. Glen of Imaal Terriers-Beating PRA Together is the fighting call of the PRA campaign in Europe. ALL monies from the sale of these items will go to to Bochum Fund that is investigating the identification of the rogue gene in Glens that causes the blindness.
The weather front for Sheffield is promising; cold but sunny and the only reported major roadworks in the area are on the M1(travelling North) just South of Sheffield.

Two PSBs in one week; we are so helpful but if asked we will try to oblige. Seriously though if anybody is in London towards the back end of the year it should be worth a look and you will recognise a few things. Not least of which will be the “sister” decanter to the one just auctioned on ebay to raise funds for the Glen of Imaal Terrier PRA Fund.
