Walk For Eric

Jo, Eric's owner, is inviting everyone to do a sponsored walk in memory of her rescue Rhodesian Ridgeback, Eric. But let's hear her own thoughts about him...........

Everyone is invited to do a sponsored WALK FOR ERIC, between the 2nd and 17th of November 2018, or you could just make a donation to raise funds for Ridgeback Rescue.

My beautiful boy, Eric, came into my life on 26th May 2014. Over the years our bond grew stronger, so much so that we could read each other’s thoughts, body language and mood. Eric’s favourite place was next to me on the sofa. He would let me know what he wanted by staring at me and then walking over to his blanket and nudging it with his nose, which was the signal for me to cover the sofa so that he could climb on. He even tried sitting on the edge of the sofa which was so funny to see. Eric saw me through some very difficult, troubling and low times.

He brought a sense of light, comfort and joy into my life, with his quiet, gentle but mischievous character. Eric was loved by everyone who knew him and would be the first one to greet them at the gate as they arrived. He was part of the family. I was devastated when Eric died, but I am grateful that he had a beautiful final day, playing with his toys and with visits from his neighbours, family and friends. Eric died peacefully, in his favourite place on the sofa and with his head on my knee, as I stroked his ears.

I consider myself extremely fortunate to have had Eric and, as heartbreaking as it is, now that he has gone, I would not have missed all the fabulous times I had with him. I will be forever grateful to Ridgeback Rescue and all the work that they do.

Thank you Jo

10.11.2018Autumn Quiz Night in Support of Rescue!

The Autumn Quiz will be held on Saturday 10th November 2018 at the Normanton-On-Soar Village Hall.

Our Quizzes have proved to be very popular, even being described by one quizzer as "the best I've ever been to". This is, in no small part, to the efforts of trustees Geoff and Eileen Phillips who organize every aspect of the night.

Why not pop along and join in? Entry is £7.00 per person with a maximum of four to a team. Nibbles are included in the ticket price, sadly the bar is not!
 
Details from Geoff at 01509 674844 or e-mail geoff@ridgebackrescue.co.uk
