THE Ayres Nature Reserve was once again host for Team Greyhound’s annual fundraising Dog Lovers’ Walk and Get-Together, an important event in the organisation’s efforts to rescue and re-home vulnerable dogs.

The four-mile sponsored walk was the fourth held in the area – the only National Nature Reserve in the island – and helped raise more than £1,300 in donations and sales from the stalls.

Team Greyhound’s Sally McMullen explained that local outfit formed in response to alarming reported figures of greyhounds left on the scrapheap after short racing careers.
