Wykamol Group have been working hard over the past 18 months to raise the £5000 needed to train a guide dog puppy and we ultimately smashed our goal with lots of help from our customers and friends.
Guide Dogs, our chosen charity, don’t receive any government funding, yet endlessly strive to provide dogs which enable blind and partially sighted people to enjoy the same freedom and independence as everyone else.
A donation of £5000 will pay for the breeding and training of a guide dog puppy, and as we have reached our goal Wykamol Group now get to name our very own puppy.
We have chosen to name our puppy, Sue, after a valued member of our Sales Admin Team who sadly passed away. We hope that Sue the Puppy brings a significant improvement to someone’s independence in memory of our colleague and friend, Sue Pickles.
On her first visit to the office, Sue the puppy was obedient and loveable and her monthly ‘pupdates’ state she is well on target with most of her training and even exceeding expectations in some areas. Although, she still needs some work when travelling on buses and obedience in shops and cafes.
We would like to thank our customers, suppliers and friends who have donated to this worthy cause via our Just Giving page and through text donations. We would particularly like to thank the following people for all their fundraising and donations:
Samantha Hawkes, Brian Bell, Lauren Kewin, Lee Wolstenholme, Lorraine Connolly, Ray Evans, Linda Harling, Lynn Wilson, Keith Gilby, Stu at Jofson Ltd, David Isaacs at Jelf Lampier, Mark and Sally at StoneHouse Logic, and everyone at Red Rose Packaging and Platinum Building Chemicals.
