Boston-based dog food manufacturer, Laughing Dog, raised over £300 for the Guide Dogs charity last week via a sponsored walk along the River Witham.
With a fundraising target of £5,000 by the end of the year, the baked dog food brand has launched a year-long programme of fundraising events for staff and customers to join. With already over £2000 raised, the team said it was pleased with its latest event.
Julie Green, from Laughing Dog, said: “Despite the typically British weather, the walk a good success. Laughing Dog is part of the Fold Hill Family; it was great to see staff and their dogs get involved. Thank you for the Sustran’s charity for allowing us to use their footbath and The Malcom Arms for letting us put on Guide Dog activities at the pub – and for warming us up with refreshments!”
Dave Bloor from Guide Dogs, said: “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.”
