At the end of the season, with some of the stock that just hasn’t sold, we support two particular charities by passing on the stock so they can sell it on their Fundraising Pages. For those of you who know us well and our love of dogs, you won’t be surprised to learn that the local charity is Woodfield Trust who rescue, care for and successfully place Romanian dogs with caring families.
According to the Woodfield Trust website –
… working in partnership with volunteers at the Boldesti Public Shelter in Romania, we rescue dogs and look after them here in our small and friendly kennels just on the outskirts of Harrogate, North Yorkshire.
More about the Woodfield Trust can be seen on the Woodfield Trust website HERE.
Our international charity is Omushana who help support young students in primary and secondary schools in southeastern Uganda through a variety of projects including building school libraries and funding sanitary ware for girls and young women through a project called Afripads.
Omushana’s main aim is to make a positive contribution to children’s lives by improving their educational opportunities, welfare, confidence, and enjoyment. They achieve this by supporting and implementing locally run projects in the areas around the mountain gorilla reserves in Africa.
Omushana’s projects are hugely varied as they address local needs, but all share the common feature of benefiting large numbers of children, often through working with local schools and needy children’s groups. Omushana aims to create maximum value with limited resources and aim to discourage dependency on continued support by prioritising sustainability and ensuring the contribution of local communities to every project.
