Mountain Trek In Support Of Cash For Kids

Mountain Trek In Support Of Cash For Kids

Derek from our Armadillo Dundee store was recently asked to accompany Cash for Kids coordinator, Alison Carr on a Mountain Trek in the High Tatras Mountains, Poland. The purpose of the trek was to raise as much money as possible for the Radio Tay – Cash for Kids Charity which the Dundee store is heavily involved with. Cash for Kids supports thousands of children across the North East of the UK who suffer abuse or neglect, are disabled and have special needs or simply need a little extra care or guidance.

Each day involved around 7 hours of walking and the occasional rock climbing at the steeper parts, to reach peaks of around 2000 meters. Day 5 of the trek […]

Big Yellow Bagshot RSPCA Day

Earlier this year, 12 members of the Bagshot office visited the RSPCA Millbrook Animal Centre in Chobham, Surrey for the second year running to take part in our Charity Day. The Millbrook Animal Centre is a RSPCA re-homing centre which finds new homes for hundreds of unwanted dogs, cats and other animals each year. Our team arrived at the charity to see what challenges lay ahead of them for the day. Painting a pen and stables seemed like an easy task at first but approximately six hours of hard work later, they turned a drab looking pen and stables into a sparkling palace for animals.
