British pet food manufacturer, Laughing Dog, has announced it is taking on the National Three Peak Challenge to help raise funds for the UK charity, Guide Dogs.
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.
