First published in Truro

The team at Truro’s Pets at Home store is celebrating after helping to raise more than £237,000 following a nationwide fundraising drive.

All of the money raised during October will be donated to animal charities that are working to find new homes for pets within the community.

Of the £237,000 raised nationally, the Truro store raised £774 through its own efforts.

Store manager Keith Westley said: “It’s fantastic that we’ve managed to raise more than £237,000 nationwide, all of which will go towards helping abandoned animals and encouraging and raising awareness of pet adoption.

“I’d like to thank my colleagues for getting behind the initiative with so much enthusiasm and, of course, our customers who helped our store raise £774.”

During October the store held a number of activities for customers to take part in, including a nationwide raffle.

Charity wristbands were also available for customers to buy for £1 and suppliers Iams and Eukanuba donated five per cent from every product sold during October to the campaign.

The fundraising drive was an appeal run by Support Adoption For Pets, the charity Pets at Home established and supports.
