We're very grateful that we recently collected items we purchased with our recent voucher totaling just over £400!! This is a massive amount for us and helps us purchase the things we really need.... and often leaves us a little to buy some treats for the animals too.
This time, along with much needed puppy pads, training long lines, frozen dog food and feliway refills, we also got some toys and chewy toys for the small animals in the small animal house.
THANK YOU Pets at Home VIP Charity Scheme
Thank you Mars Petcare and TescoImagine this.. You have just had to cancel a series of Open Days that are key to fundraising for HULA as the awful weather has rendered your field unable to park your valued visitors and supporters. You are thinking what you can do, to encourage our wonderful supporters to keep helping HULA.
You then receive a telephone call from Andrew Winfrow, Charities Manager at Pedigree to say that Tesco’s and Mars Petcare are to partner to "raise awareness of Pets in Need" and that this very unique event is taking place from 27th April 2016 to 19th May 2016.
Well as you can imagine we were delighted to hear this but even more delighted & excited to learn that HULA and seven other charities have been selected to benefit from this fabulous initiative.
So we all hope that you will support HULA by getting involved in the Pedigree/Tesco initiative to support rescue homes.
How can you get involved?Between 27th April 2016 to 19th May 2016 every time you purchase Tesco own label, Pedigree, Whiskas, Sheba or Cesar pet care products at your local Tesco, the wonderful people there will donate 1p to be split between the lucky charities who have been selected.
How fantastic is that? As you know only too well, every penny helps. As you will see from the poster below the aim is to raise a staggering £150,000 to support rescue homes.
Everyone at HULA would like to extend sincere thanks to Pedigree and Tesco for thinking of us and nominating us to be part of their initiative to support rescue homes up and down the country.
Could you give me a home?
Super Support from Santander
We were absolutely delighted when the Finance team from Santander, who have their headquarters in Milton Keynes; contacted us and said those magical words ‘we would love to help’.
Jarrod from Santander visited the site and saw the extent of the work and then rallied his team. We were delighted to welcome 20 Santander employees who carried out the following jobs on Wednesday March 16th:-
- Filled 68 potholes and moved 50 bags of tarmac
- Re-varnished our farmyard fencing
- Helped with a spring clean and transformed our café area
Here’s what the Santander Team said about joining the HULA Team for the day..
Lisa Sparks – ‘Although it was a cold day, it was good fun and all the staff there were very helpful’
Lisa Trigger –‘It was a really lovely day!! Can we do it again?’ :)
Jarrod Glover – ‘HULA are a fantastic local charity and we welcomed the opportunity to support them with our Discovery Day. The HULA team were fantastic, very supportive and welcoming and this was reflected by the huge effort from the Santander team; working beyond the allotted time and providing personal donations of over £70 to fund additional materials”.
Thank you so much Santander we are extremely grateful for your help and support.
