Epsom Guardian readers have donated over 200 tennis balls to Epsom Canine Rescue, in response to an appeal published on the website just two weeks ago.

Nikki Weeks-Taylor, Epsom Canine Rescue Coordinator, says: “I would just like to say a huge thank you to both your online readers and the paper readers for the fantastic response we have had.

“I have had over 200 tennis balls thanks to your appeal and we have had some financial donations in, which has been brilliant.”

“Some of the donations were anonymous. People have obviously looked at the website.”

“It’s raised awareness about the rescue centre and it’s been brilliant. The dogs are very happy.”
