Most recently we became aware of SPANA’s vital lameness programme and were so impressed that we decided to donate £40,000 to give the project the huge boost it deserves.
Something that we pride ourselves on here is the fact that all of our staff are huge animal lovers, I know what you’re thinking, we’re bound to say that, but it really is true. A number of the donations made to SPANA have actually come at the request of members of the team.
Back in March 2011, some of the staff took part in the Heartbreaker Half Marathon in the New Forest to raise funds for animal welfare charities. Each member of staff that took part was allocated £200 to donate to a charity of their choice, and, you guessed it, SPANA was one of the charities chosen.
We also run an ‘Employee of the Month’ scheme whereby every month our standout employees are allowed to choose a charity for us to donate £1,000 to, and in one of the months SPANA was the name on everyone’s lips.
Not content in getting just the staff to help us choose who we donate to, we also run a highly successful competition on our Facebook page ‘Feel Good Park’.
