Featureworld’s story in the News of the World raises all pup Lola’s money …

Thank you readers for your generosity! Story follow up in the NEWS OF THE WORLD yesterday. And last week’s story…

When Soldier Sophia Snape contacted me about how she rescued a stray pup from Afghanistan, she simply hoped to raise money towards the quarantine fees.
But after I placed Sophia’s story with the News of the World newspaper a week ago, she was overwhelmed with donations. In fact, she had raised the necessary amount to pay for dog Lola to come to the UK and the quarantine fees by the Sunday lunchtime.
During the week Sophia said she really wanted to thank readers who had been so generous with their donations that they had given more money than she needed.
Fortunately, the News of the World agreed and yesterday printed an update to Sophia’s story, saying thank you to their readers.
Incidentally, the extra money raised will go to charity Nowzad to help other stray dogs in Afghanistan so none of the donations will be wasted.
Meanwhile, I have now placed Sophia’s story as a double page spread with a leading national women’s magazine.
More about that when the feature appears as it promises to be a wonderful update on Sophia and of course her beautiful little dog, Lola.
