Laughing Dog has announced a fundraising target of £5,000, and launched a programme of fundraising events for staff and customers to get involved with throughout 2019. With already over £1,500 raised, the team is now training for its next challenge in May.
Kate Tarrant, of the manufacturer said: “Our next challenge is quite a challenge – three mountains in three days for our team of seven walkers. Climbing Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon will see us cover 23 miles with a total ascent of 3,064 metres. In addition to this we have over 1,000 miles of driving to contend with. As a team we’re all busy training for the event – from gym sessions and spinning classes, to mountain climbs at weekends.
“So far we’ve raised over £1,500 with all our fundraising events so are well on our way to achieving our target. Thank you to all our retail customers who have supported us so far – it’s really spurred us on!”
Dave Bloor from Guide Dogs, added: “We are delighted to be working with Laughing Dog Food as their new charity partner. At Guide Dogs, we want everyone who experiences sight loss to live a full and rewarding life and this partnership will make a vital contribution to our work.”
Laughing Dog’s aim is to raise £5,000 throughout the year to ensure for at least one year’s training. If you are able to donate a few pennies to help spur the team on and raise valuable funds for the Guide Dogs in the process.
