Rug Doctor raises £2500 for charity

For the past four years, Rug Doctor has been supporting the training of dogs for the disabled at Canine Partners through the fundraising efforts of Paul Hansford, who runs the Rug Doctor company snack shop in its head office in Worthing.

“For the past four years we have been running a collection box in the 'Snack Shop', which sells cold drinks, chocolate bars, crisps, healthier snacks etc and even ice creams in the summer,” commented Hansford, finance and HR director at Rug Doctor. “Through the generous donations of Rug Doctor staff, we have now managed to raise over £5000 in that time. This is enough to pay for training 10 puppies.”

These recent efforts have resulted in a cheque being presented for £2500 to Canine Partners at its Heyshott office on Thursday 25 August.

The connection between Canine Partners and Rug Doctor comes partly from the fact that Hansford himself worked at Canine Partners as a trainer for two years, and also because Rug Doctor produces a range of special household cleaning products which includes a solution which removes both the stains and underlying odours caused by pet accidents.

Canine Partners was founded in 1990 to assist people with disabilities to enjoy greater independence and a better quality of life, by providing specially trained assistance dogs.
