Co-op Celebration Day
On Saturday 23rd November 2019, we were incredibly grateful to receive a 'giant cheque' for our Co-op Local Community Fund donation at the Co-op Celebration Day. Store Manager James Lovell presented Furlock Holmes Charity Founder Eleanor Bell, employee Connor Hughes and volunteers Ryan Farr and Elliott Hunt (along with Mittens and Floki the bunnies, Jaffa the guinea pig, Yoda the duck and Maureen the chicken) with the cheque for £3006.69 inside the shop in Whitchurch.
The fantastic donation was raised by local Co-op members who selected Furlock Holmes as their chosen charity for the Co-op Community Fund. When members buy Co-op branded products, the Co-op give 1% to their chosen local charity.
We were so pleased to be chosen as one of the Co-op local causes in Whitchurch and would like to say a huge thank you both to the Co-op and to everyone who chose us as their local charity - thank you everyone!
This donation has been gratefully received and has enabled us to build a fantastic new outdoor area for our rabbits and guinea pigs. Building and setting up the new area has been a real community team effort. Local volunteers, young and old working together using carpentry skills, painting and gardening to create a safe, secure outdoor area that will benefit both our animals and visitors for years to come.
We are incredibly grateful for every penny raised and we are sure that our animals are too! Our rabbits and guinea pigs are thoroughly enjoying their new outdoor area. Thank you!
