Willows continued commitment to Charity
14 January 2018
Just before Christmas, Willows gifted £1,000 to three charities, as nominated by our clients and staff.
As part of our commitment to charity, each quarter Willows donate £1,000 to good causes. Over the past few months, our clients have been given a token when they visited the practice and asked to vote for one of our three chosen charities; Cats Protection, Dogs for Good and Hollytrees Animal Rescue Trust. The proportion of votes received for each charity determine the share of £1,000 that is donated to each charity by Willows.
The votes are now in and we are delighted to announce that the Cats Protection and Dogs for Good both received £350, and Hollytrees Animal Rescue £300.
All of the charities were delighted with their donations:
Hollytrees Kennels is owned and run by Ray and Ann Dedicoat who have been involved with the care and welfare of animals throughout the West Midlands for over thirty five years. Hollytrees Animal Rescue Trust is based at these kennels. Their mission statement is; to rescue and provide care and shelter for stray, abandoned, neglected and unwanted animals of all kinds. To protect animals from ill usage, cruelty and suffering. The relief of persons unable to afford veterinary fees for the spaying of cats and dogs by assisting with the charges. The relief of the elderly who are unable to afford kennel costs or vets bills for their pets.
Alison Dickenson, Centre Manager at Cats Protection Birmingham, said; 'At the Birmingham Adoption Centre we rehome over 1,000 cats each year and as the UK's leading cat welfare charity, we are dedicated to helping cats and kittens in the Birmingham area. Our vision is a world where every cat is treated with kindness and understanding of its needs and a very important area of our work is to educate and support the local community with help and advice on cat care. All our work is funded by kind donations, therefore to receive a substantial sum from Willows Veterinary Centre is a wonderful Christmas present – thank you Willows!'
Tina Williams, regional fundraiser for Dogs for Good, said: 'Thank you for your wonderful support of Dogs for Good, these wonderful funds will enable us to keep changing the lives of people through practical support, unconditional love, increased confidence and independence that our dogs bring. By supporting our work with your charity token scheme, we can continue to make a difference to more people.'
