Hull Veterinary group to kick off fund-raising at Christmas light switch-on

Staff from Carr House Rescue Centre with HavenA local veterinary group will be taking to the Hedon Christmas light switch-on on 28th November in a first for the practice as part of their Christmas fund-raising events in support of Carr House Rescue and Bransby Horses.

Employees at the Haven Veterinary Group, with practices in Hull and Hedon, have been busy preparing for their stall by holding a staff pet photo shoot to create an innovative pet calendar.

Evie Beattie, senior practice administrator, organised the events and said: “The photo-shoot was great to get us in the mood for Christmas – chaos ensued but we got some superb photos!

“Please come and see us on the night and in the branches and help us to support these very deserving charities.”

During the Hedon switch-on, which takes place on November 28th, the Haven team will also be selling Christmas cards with the photographs of staff pets, cat and dog goodie bags, horse treat bags, home-made cat and dog biscuits and other surprise items.

They will also be holding an ‘Adopt a cuddly’ prize draw competition on the night.

The calendars and cards will also be on sale at both practices along with pet goodie bags from December 1, alongside raffles at both branches for a luxury hamper at Hedon and a hamper and cuddly toy at the Hull practice.

The 100 year old veterinary group is raising money for Hull-based Carr House Dog Rescue and Lincolnshire charity Bransby Horses, one of the UK’s largest equine welfare charities.
