With the cost of overheads rising and with so many deserving charities chasing limited donation funds, the Friends would be very grateful to receive any cash donation, however large or small. Please contact our Treasurer on 01268 711190.
If you live in or around the Brentwood or Chelmsford areas and would like to assist us in fund raising or help at events such as Jumble Sales, Street Collections etc, please contact our Chairman on 01277 821737.
As washing facilities are very limited at the Kennels we are often desperate for clean blankets in good condition to be used as bedding. If you are local to the Essex area and have unwanted blankets then please get in touch with us on 01277 821737.

Sponsored Dog Walk 21st August 2016
Unfortunately there were difficulties with the date/starting off point this year. Monies received so far amount to £1,922, well down on last year. We would like to thank Cllr Mrs Noelle Hones, Mayor of Brentwood, for starting off the walk and also all those who walked and raised funds on our behalf.
Year Ended 31.03.2016
During the last financial year our own unavoidable expenses increased even more as we had to pay people to collect, sort and store jumble and transport on the day. Nevertheless we donated an average of £2,781 per month towards Wallace Kennels’ costs in terms of monthly support, repairs, food and blankets, electricity & gas, vet’s bills, fostering, cleaning materials, etc. In addition we paid over a lump sum of £20,000 received from a legacy, for maintenance and special projects.
As always, our sincere thanks go to all our supporters, fundraisers and helpers, whose tireless efforts enable us to support Wallace Kennels to the extent that we do – many thanks to all of you.
Our membership fell by 15% during 2015/2016. We are designing a new publicity leaflet to be handed out at events with membership forms. Our new Secretary has also set up a Facebook page to help improve our profile.
