Staff at Laughing Dog have been keeping themselves active during lunch breaks, evenings and weekends to raise funds for UK charity the Guide Dogs.
Keeping a step tracker between the team, their aim is to walk the equivalent length of the UK – from John O’Groats to Land’s End. For every donation made to its Guide Dog Just Giving page, the Lincolnshire pet food company is donating dog food parcels to UK animal food banks.
Cassandra Brennan, a member of the Laughing Dog team, said: “Whether it’s running around the garden with our children or going on a quiet walk or bike ride (we’ve been getting up very early to ensure we keep to social distancing measures!), we’re keeping active to ensure we can switch off from work properly and stay active.
“Some of us have dogs, some of us don’t – either way, we’re enjoying getting some steps in. Each week our Laughing Dog food team is checking in with a weekly mileage figure so we can keep a count of our steps and, along the way, we are hoping to raise a few pennies for our charity partner, the Guide Dogs.”
Laughing Dog is part of Fold Hill Foods, based in Boston. Laughing Dog’s Farm Bakery range of dry completes, treats and mixer meals is made at its site in Lincolnshire.
