The College of Animal Welfare’s dog grooming school is delighted to have raised £260 for Godmanchester Foodbank by pampering lots of local pets!

As part of its silver jubilee year celebrations, the College, based in Chord Business Park, Godmanchester recently ran a celebratory offer to local people, giving them the opportunity to have their dogs professionally groomed for just £10 with all the money split between the Foodbank and the College’s Student Hardship Fund.

A total of £260 was raised and the College agreed to donate an additional £260 to the fundraising total so each worthy cause received the full amount.

Debbie Allgood, Commercial Manager at The College of Animal Welfare, said “We are delighted to have raised such a great amount of money for two very worthy causes. We have had the pleasure of meeting many lovely dogs during the fundraising period, and would like to thank everyone who has helped to make this such a success”.

On Monday 21 July, Jude Lechmere, from Godmanchester Foodbank, was presented with a cheque for £260. She said “We would like to thank The College of Animal Welfare for their kind donation. The past two years have become increasingly busy for the Foodbank with over 12,000kg of food given out last year.  Many people show real courage in coming to the Foodbank to ask for help at a time when they feel isolated and low. The donation will help us to continue to give emergency aid to people in need when our shelves are empty”.
