Pets at Home’s ‘Support Adoption for Pets’
Here at HAWS we consider ourselves really lucky to have been partnered with 2 branches of Pets at Home in 2020 as their Charity of the Year. This allows us to have a pet food collection bin inside the Brentford and Richmond stores and also to be a beneficiary of their twice-yearly fundraising activity. In previous years we have had a team of volunteers in the stores supporting the fund raising, but of course due to Covid-19 things have had to be different this year. Pets at Home went ahead with their summer fundraising regardless and we were thrilled to receive a £1,525 donation. This was so welcome as pretty much all of our regular fund raising such as at local fairs and fetes has been curtailed this year.
Now is the time for their Christmas fundraising, the annual Santa Paws appeal. This is running up until 24thDecember and HAWS will receive 50% of the money raised in the Brentford and Richmond shops, even though we can still not actively support them in the store.
And more good news …..We will be Charity of the Year in the same 2 Pets at Home stores in 2021 too!
