Virgin TrainsA stay at an exclusive resort in Switzerland, signed football shirts and a pair of First-Class tickets on Virgin Trains, are just some of the prizes to be won in a raffle being held at Stockport station in aid of a charity for homeless dogs.



The raffle and fundraising will be taking place at the station in aid of Dogs4Rescue this weekend (August 3) and later in August. Members of the public are being invited to take part and also enjoy a cupcake.



Prizes have been donated to the raffle for the Manchester based charity that houses homeless dogs in a kennel free environment.



It is the UK’s first free running rescue where the dogs have their own log cabins around the site and choose where to sleep and shelter alongside farmyard animals before they find their new owners.



Dogs4Rescue have taken in and rehomed more than 1,200 dogs from across the United Kingdom and Europe in the five years since the charity was formed.



Supporter of the charity, Adrienne Nankivell, Head of Offline Channels, at Virgin Trains, has organised the fundraising drive.



She volunteers her time to support the charity and has adopted three dogs in the past three years.



Adrienne said: “The aim of this charity is to change the perception many people hold towards rescue dogs which are often unfairly labelled as “damaged goods” as some wrongly believe they can be undisciplined and destructive.


“The space at Dogs4Rescue is cage-free, giving dogs the structure they need as well as the time to adapt in a fun, caring foster home.


“Being a dog lover, it’s a charity which is very close to my heart. They rely solely on donations and fundraising. I really wanted to do something to help.”



Founder of Dogs4Rescue, Emma Billington, said: “We are pioneering a new kennel-free model for dog rescue and are so grateful to be supported by Adrienne who has organised this event. Everyone who buys a ticket is helping to rescue a dog in need.”



Top prize is a two-night stay at Richard Branson’s Verbier Lodge in Switzerland with stunning view of The Alps.



The raffle and fundraising will take place at Stockport Station on Saturday, 3 August and Saturday, 24 August between 9am and 2pm.
