At Dignity, we are proud to support a number of fantastic animal charities. One of the ways in which we do this is through our Charity Wishing Well, which is situated in our grounds. Our clients can make donations into the well when they visit and the donations then go to a different nominated charity each time we empty it. We try and give our support to smaller animal charities that need it the most but also work with larger charities when we know the money raised goes to the care of the animals.
We recently emptied our Charity Wishing Well and we’re delighted to announce that £400 has been raised from this along with general client donations over the last couple of months. We have match funded this amount which means we’re giving £800 to our animal charities!
This money will be split equally between the following charities:
A lovely client also generously donated £50 and they wanted this to go specifically to a cat charity, so this money will be going to Cats Protection (Farnham, Camberley & District).
The next charity to hang on the well is Wheek & Squeak Guinea Pig Rescue & Boarding.
Wheek & Squeak Guinea Pig Rescue & Boarding are based in Bishops Waltham and they take in unwanted guinea pigs and take care of them until a suitable home is found. The Rescue is entirely dependent on donations and fundraising. Some poor piggies arrive in an appalling state and are nursed back to health with the assistance of their vet. When guinea pigs are adopted they have the full support of the charity for their lifetime. In some cases, usually through ongoing health problems, guinea pigs cannot be rehomed so they will stay in their retirement section and spend the rest of their days with Wheek & Squeak.
We’d like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to all of our wonderful clients who have donated to our chosen animal charities.
