Every month our staff raise money for a different local or national charity to help promote awareness for a variety of important causes.
Our latest sponsored charity is the National Animal Welfare Trust, one of the UK’s top animal welfare charities which operates a number of remoting centres across the south of England.
Established as an independent charity in 1971, the National Animal Welfare Trust works to rehome the many pets that come into its care and ensure that they move on to new, loving homes.
The Trust has a long and storied history that reaches back beyond the seventies, having started life as an offshoot of the British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection in 1958 and tasked with caring for the dogs they saved.
Over the decades since then the National Animal Welfare Trust has expanded its scope and opened six rehoming centres spanning across the breadth of the south, from Cornwall to Essex.
In the last year the Trust was responsible for rehoming nearly 1,200 animals, ranging from cats and dogs to guinea pigs and goats, with many more still waiting for a new home.
As well as the day-to-day work of caring for and rehoming animals the Trust also runs campaigns designed to improve the welfare of pets across the country, such as the Puppy Pledge and Pet Care Card.
Of every £1 the National Animal Welfare Trust receives in donations, 87p goes directly towards animal welfare and bettering the lives of pets facing rehoming.
As more than 75% of the Trust’s support comes from legacies, funds gifted to the charity in people’s wills, this makes the support of alternative fundraising routes even more important.
Over the course of a month staff at TorFX raised £380 through a weekly sponsored dress down, trading shirts for t-shirts for a small donation.
If you are interested in helping the National Animal Welfare Trust, either through your own fundraising or by donating your time to volunteer in one of their charity shops or a rehoming centre, then you can find out more on their website.
In order to keep up with the work that the Trust does, and look out for any adoptable pets that might catch your eye, then be sure to follow the National Animal Welfare Trust’s Twitter and Facebook accounts.
