Worksop Pets At Home's Santa Paws appeal has raised more than £2,000.

Since the nationwide fundraiser launched on November 22 last year, both colleagues and customers in Pets At Home Worksop helped raise money for pets at Friends of Akitas Trust over the festive period.

The appeal, which ran until Christmas Eve, gave customers at Pets At Home Worksop the opportunity to donate funds for pets spending Christmas at Friends of Akitas Trust, along with other Pets at Home stores across the UK, which were also supporting their local rescues.

The annual Santa Paws appeal marked the final fundraising event of 2019 for Support Adoption For Pets, and in total raised £1.9 million in Pets at Home stores nationwide.

The Worksop store’s total included £1,965 for Friends of Akitas Trust.

Amy Wilson, Support Adoption For Pets fundraising manager, said: “Every year, we set ambitious fundraising targets for our Santa Paws appeal, but in 2019 in particular, our new charity of the year partnerships allowed rescues and their local Pets at Home stores to build even stronger relationships to raise these vital funds.

“We would like to thank everybody who made a donation in Worksop. Your help and continued support in 2019 brought wagging tails and smiles, not just at Christmas, but all year round.”
