We were delighted to head up the M4 and get our glad rags on for The Pet Industry Federation Awards at Whittlebury Hall yesterday. The event is pretty legendary in the pet world and features all the industry's movers and shakers which gives us a great chance to socialise and learn about new developments and trends in the woof world.
In addition to the fun and frolics, we took home the award for Charity of the Year for our work with The Burns Pet Nutrition Foundation- our in-house charity. We had been crossing our paws for a good few weeks prior to the event, so to say we are delighted is an understatement. The award was sponsored by Mars Petcare and we were in the running along with the very wonderful International Cat Care.
We set up The Burns Pet Nutrition Foundation in 2007 to improve the lives of people and pets across the UK and have an in-house community team of 6 dedicated to charitable projects and schemes. Be it our grassroots Burns By Your Side programme or fledgling Charity of the Year Project, we are keen to use our profits to help the greater good and it was fantastic to receive recognition and know we're heading in the right direction.
Until next year!
