Television Presenter Julie Collier was awarded the George Ford Award for services to Retired Greyhounds on 25 January at the Greyhound Board of Great Britain (GBGB) awards ceremony held at The Lancaster Hotel in London.
Julie Collier has been a strong supporter of the Retired Greyhound Trust for many years. An owner of a retired hound herself, Julie has organised auctions, interviewed celebrity greyhound supporters and takes every opportunity to speak highly about greyhounds as pets while presenting Racing Post Greyhound TV.
The Services to Retired Greyhounds Award, which recognises outstanding achievements that support ex-racing greyhound rehoming, has been awarded to supporters and volunteers of the Retired Greyhound Trust since 1999. This is the fourth year that the George Ford Award Trophy has been awarded with this top honour.
