Received a really disappointing email this afternoon and if I'm honest it has left me extremely flat and very worried. It appears an over zealous supporter of the work we do has broken the terms and conditions of Ocean Finances Win The Tin competition and not complied to the rules re voting.
A lot of votes have now been rescinded meaning we are not back on 1% and almost certainly out of the competition. All I know is the IP address involved seems to originate from America.
The £5,000 we may of won if we had stayed in pole position would of guaranteed the charities survival throughout what I can only describe as the worst winter I have known in rescue, now with kennels over flowing and very limited funds we have to go back to the drawing board to come up with a plan that gets us through the tough months before spring comes around.
Deflated isn't the only feeling right now, so many more sum up having a secure immediate future taken away.
