After mentioning her interest in helping the kennels, who receive no direct public funding for their work, her colleagues joined in the fund-raising. Claire baked cakes all week along with Sue Bourne, Steve Jones and Jackie Tooze. Steve and Julie Barnett donated new dog coats for Hilbrae Kennels. Julie also raised £30 by having a Phoenix Cards box in the office and having parties too.
Claire says: “I am delighted that my colleagues decided to help me support this worthy cause. We’ve got a lot of dog lovers here and everyone has been very generous!! We’ve raised £170.00 which will be very helpful to the Hilbrae Rescue Kennels. I always drop them a big bag of dog food at Christmas but I wanted to try and do more to help, they do a wonderful job there.”
