Kidderminster store links with animal charity for appeal
6:10am Monday 7th October 2013 in Local
A KIDDERMINSTER store has teamed up with an animal charity in a fund-raising drive.
The town’s Pets at Home is working with Support Adoption For Pets over four weeks. The charity, with help from the store teams, will be working to raise money for local animal rescue centres in its autumn fund-raising initiative.
It is hoping to raise £400,000 nationally, all of which will go to animal rescue centres and welfare organisations across the UK.
Charity manager Amy Wilson said; “Our spring fund-raising appeal earlier this year was a great success and we managed to raise £300,000 nationwide but we’re hoping to top that this time round.
“We will be holding a number of activities in stores over the course of the appeal to help us raise funds for local animal rescues.” Prizes are on offer in a draw.
Customers can take part in the Round up to a £1 initiative by opting to round up the cost of their purchases to £1, with the difference being donated to the appeal.
All the money raised in the store will be donated to animal rescues in Kidderminster.
Emma Morgans, store manager at Pets at Home Kidderminster, said: “We are fully behind Support Adoption For Pets in their bid to raise £400,000.”
