As usual we hit the ground running. The month started with it's usual backlog created by taking time off but it was nice to be back I must admit.
We filed our usual accounts with the Charity Commission and Companies house and you can of course read those HERE (PDF download) or via the Charity Commission web site at https://apps.charitycommission.gov.uk/Accounts/Ends09/0001115009_AC_20190331_E_C.pdf
January is always a busy month and it feel like it's forever before we are any where near caught up from the Christmas Break, but of course the dogs keep on coming and during January we have had 30 requests to rehome a dog
One of the wonderful things that happened during January was the discovery that we had received almost 80 nominations for the PetPlan/ACDH annual Charity awards. We usually get around 4 or 5 so to get 80 was totally mind blowing. It's always a concern that because we work with such a contraversial breed I'm never really sure how that will dictate going forward when it comes to making the decision, but as I had to buy a new frock for the Manchester and Counties Bulldog Club Awards Evening - it would be nice to give that another airing before it finds itself sat in the wardrobe for the next 20 years.
The awards night was amazing and the committee of the Manchester and Counties really need to slap themselves on the back for the work they put into the night. Both myself and our Chairman Vicky received Lifetime Commitment awards which was absolutely wonderful and very much a suprise for us both
Congratulations to all the winners on the night, it was a lovely evening
So here's the breakdown for January
