The race meeting at Wimbledon Stadium on Saturday June 11th includes the Final of the William Hill sponsored Greyhound Derby, the biggest event in the British greyhound racing calendar.
For this reason, our South West London branch are appealing for extra support for their demo/leafletting outside the stadium that evening, so please do your best to attend, especially if you live in or near the area.
There will be a demo outside the main gate of the stadium from 5.15pm until 8pm and then leafletting from 10pm until 11.30pm to catch the punters coming out.
If you can help at either, or both, of these, please call 07583 313246 or 07982 247293.
Extra help is also needed with leafletting on Saturday June 4th, when the semi-finals of the event are taking place. Once again, please call the numbers above, if you can help.
