6* Care When You're Not There

Charity of the Month!

West Berkshire Homeless Charity

The first recipient of our 'Charity of the Month' project is the West Berkshire Homeless Charity

We feel it is essential to keep those in such vulnerable positions, safe and well cared for; the night time shelter they provide is invaluable.

Eight Bells for Mental Health

Eight Bells is a member led charity based in Newbury that seeks to help those in and around the area with mental health issues.

Thankfully the importance of mental health is now being recognised and we whole heartedly support the work Eight Bells has done and continues to do.

Brain Tumour Research

Every year 16,000 people are diagnosed with a brain tumour.

They kill more children and those under 40 then any other cancer; despite this statistic, only 1% of the national spend is allocated to the Brain Tumour Research charity.

We were excited to not only donate but to also take part in their 'Wear a hat day' which takes place every March.

Take a look at our 'Charity Work' page and enjoy photos of our dogs wearing hats!
