Cumbria Office host fundraiser for local Animal Charity – Animal Concern
The Cumbria office hosted a bake sale and donation station early in December to raise funds for our ‘COTY – Charity of the year’ Animal Concern – Cumbria.
I had the pleasure of visiting the animal shelter in Egremont to see first hand the work and dedication all the volunteers put into helping animals in need and supporting them while looking for forever homes.
The team are made up of a group of lovely selfless individuals dedicating their time to look after our beloved 4 legged friends.
We managed to raise an amazing £120 from selling cakes! And with support from the company charity budget, this was match funded taking the total up to £200 which we have donated to Animal Concern to help them continue their amazing work.
We also received a direct donation which helped towards the purchase of blankets, toys and food which was topped up by our colleagues and other companies around the park.
Thank you to everybody who helped me make this happen and thank you to the company for providing a charity fund to allow us to make a big difference to our local charities.
