12 members of staff from Elanco Animal Health have just taken on a strenuous, lung-busting challenge to raise funds for Dogs for Good – a 24 hour sponsored ‘Spinathon’ at the charity’s Banbury HQ from 7pm on Wednesday 28 September – 7pm on Thursday 29 September.
The amazing corporate fundraising event is part of the company’s long-term support for the charity.
In April Elanco chose Dogs for Good as its long term charity partner and has already donated £15,000 to support the charity including the training of puppy Charlie (pictured). Elanco staff are planning other fundraising initiatives and are also carrying out voluntary work for the charity.
“The Elanco team is passionate about the role of the human-animal bond in enriching people’s lives and we are proud to be supporting the exciting work of Dogs for Good,” says Gaynor Hillier, UK and Ireland affiliate director at Elanco Animal Health.
“We’re so impressed by this fantastic effort by Elanco staff,” says Dogs for Good Corporate Partnerships Manager Cathryn Simpson. “The funds they raise will help us train assistance dogs to support people living with disabilities and children with autism or therapy dogs to work in schools and the community.”
