Ridgie Round Pound

Our Kerry is at it again! Armed with a Bowler Hat and a Furled Umbrella she's after your "Round Pounds"!! I'll leave you with our budding banker's own take on it............


As I'm sure you will have heard, there is a brand new pound coin in existence as of 28th March, 2017. We at Ridgeback Rescue thought it might be cool if people could let us have any of the old style ones that they don't use before the dead line which is 15th October.

Round PoundsCoins that haven't been spent by 15th October should be taken to the bank to redeem their value but obviously we would happily take them off people's hands and redeem them for Ridgeback Rescue instead so feel free to hand them in to us at any shows where they see one of our Trustees (Janice Ellis, Helen Mansfield, JJ Robinson, Kerry Rhodes, Lynn Maylor, Kate Maylor, Kevin Blackwell, Eileen Phillips or Geoff Phillips) between now and the LKA show which takes place at the NEC in December 2017.

Anybody not able to drop them off to us at a show can also post them to me if they prefer and I will happily hang on to them and hand them all in together after the LKA show. Should you wish to do that, my address is:

Kerry Rhodes, 
18 Linton, 
East Yorkshire, 
HU15 1FE"

Update 31st August 2017..............

If you would like to donate your "Round Pounds" to us, please try to do so before 15th October 2017 since there seems to be some confusion over whether the banks will accept them or not after that date. you like to help raise funds for Midlands and Northern Rhodesian Ridgeback Support and Rescue Trust?

ShoesShoes for Rescues --

Introducing "Shoes for Rescues".

Jackie Miles has come up with a great idea to raise money for our charity, for free!

This simply involves you raking out all those shoes that you now find impossible to wear! Maybe they are out of fashion, no longer fit your feet, or perhaps, those six inch stilettos are now proving too much of a cliff to fall off! Whatever the reason as long as they are paired and half decent, we can benefit from them!

There are a number of other things we can benefit from too, such as :-

Wearable Clothing
Matching Bed Linen
Handbags and Belts
Small Electrical Items - working or not
And of course The Shoes!

bin bagsHow does it work?

You bag up any of the above items (black bin bags are ideal for this) and then transport them to any dog show that Jackie is in attendance at. She will accept your brimming bags from you, and miraculously turn them into much needed wonga; no, she hasn't got a magic wand (failed her finals at Hogwarts you see!) She will merely transport them to the Evesham depot of Cash4Clothes, who will pay £5.00 per 10kg bag of shoes and clothing etc. and 50p per 10kg of books and electricals. Simples!!

Jackie can be contacted on 01386 442035 or email

Alternatively, if you don't attend dog shows but still want to help, check out where you will be able to find your nearest Cash4Clothes Depot.

Legacies --  As the Bard of Avon would have it, it is the fate of us all, to eventually "shuffle off from this mortal coil"!

Before this inevitable consequence of life occurs, would you consider bequeathing something to The Trust in your will? This will help our successors to continue supporting Ridgebacks which have fallen on hard times?

If so, please download our Legacies Guidance Notes here.
