Don't Miss the "All Creatures Great and Small" Pet Blessing at Worcester Cathedral

Hundreds of hounds and hound-lovers from across the West Midlands will flock to Worcester Cathedral on Saturday the 18th of April for a special charity service in aid of the Retired Greyhound Trust, which will also be attended by the Mayor of Worcester, Councillor Mr Alan Amos, and the Mayoress, Mrs Sue Amos.

The "All Creatures Great and Small" Animal Blessing is one of a number of events being held to celebrate the RGT's 40th anniversary and will involve a special, animal-friendly service which includes music, animal-related hymns, readings and a very special Memory Tree, on which those who wish to remember a pet that has passed away can place a memorial heart. After this special blessing, pets and their owners will have the opportunity to enjoy refreshments and will be able to browse a number of charity and guest stalls in the cathedral's cloisters. 

Tracey Parbery, Secretary of the Hall Green branch of the RGT and organiser of the blessing said: "We are excited to welcome greyhounds, owners, RGT volunteers and supporters to this very special service which commemorates 40 years of the Retired Greyhound Trust's work. The RGT has found loving homes for over 70,000 greyhounds since 1975, and I thought this blessing would be a lovely way to recognise this achievement.

"We would like to extend an invitation to anyone who loves animals, supports the RGT or who would simply like to find out more about the charity's work. It promises to be a great day for dogs and owners alike, and we hope many people will join us for this unique celebration."

The "All Creatures Great and Small" Animal Blessing starts at 2pm and admission is free. For further information, please contact Hall Green Retired Greyhound Trust on 07703 280321.
