Great Dane Care Charitable Trust
“Great Dane Care Charitable Trust would like to say that we are open as long as it is legally possible. Due to the present situation we cannot allow entry to the assessment centre without prior arrangement to protect our vital staff and volunteers. The same consideration is going to be given to our army of home checkers who will not be expected to put themselves or others at risk. Vet checks will be normally be taken up for people wanting to take on a Great Dane and then home checks organised after rehoming until the situation changes.
Donations are very welcome as many of the events normally attended this year for fundraising and breed rescue awareness, have been cancelled, so far this year, your continuing support is needed!! We hope the situation will soon come to an end and you will all keep safe.”
SPONSORS OF OUR CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW 2020
Ronald Lawton Johnson Lewis
25th August 1927 / 01st January 2020
It is with great sadness we announce that our President Mr Ron Lewis passed away on 1st January 2020 age 92 years old.
Ron alongside his wife Freda of the famous Walkmyll kennels, played a very active roll in our beloved breed for many years. Their knowledge and support were paramount to The Great Dane Club and Great Dane Community. Ron will be sadly missed by all of us at The Great Dane Club.
Important Information regarding our Open Show
It is with regret that following todays announcement by the Kennel Club The Great Dane Club Open Show on 28th March 2020 held alongside The Great Dane Breeders and Owners Association will officially now be cancelled. We have decided as a committee not to postpone the show due to the uncertainty of the situation we all find ourselves in. So our next Open Show will be 21st November 2021 and the judge will remain as Jacqui Wallis. A refund of entries will be available to all that have entered in due course, but please be patient with us, as you can imagine it may take a while to work through things. Thank you all for your support at this difficult time, take care and look after yourselves.
