As a thank you for all their efforts to help find loving family homes for the greyhounds that race at Yarmouth Stadium, the venue's management invited Homefinders volunteers to an evening of racing in the executive lounges.

About 75 volunteers, who cover fundraising and creating awareness at the stadium or walk and help to care for the available dogs at the Hainford homing kennel, enjoyed twelve races, a catch up and a barbecue during what was called a 'really nice social evening' by organisers.

The featured race of the evening was the Yarmouth Greyhound Homefinders Trophy.

Homefinding Co-ordinator Corinne Douglas presented the trophy to Marge Hunter, grandmother of trainer Nicky Skiggs who is seen holding his winner Monroe Brae, surrounded by the Homefinders volunteers.
