We’re absolutely thrilled to have recently been named by Amazon in Coalville as their Stand Out Charity for 2017. This accolade awarded by their Fun and Community Committee – some members of whom have experienced our work first hand – means that the charity will receive a donation of £5000 during the course of the year.
These vital funds will help pay for solar panels at our Packington base so that we can reduce our running costs and become more self-sufficient. The other half will fund Animal Assisted Therapy for children living with disease, illness or limited opportunity.
In addition to this amazing grant, Amazon Coalville will also be providing volunteers for specific projects and we will be taking our animals to various Amazon events throughout the year to help deepen this new relationship.
