Haskins celebrates a successful year of fundraising to provide assistance dogs in the community

Haskins Garden Centre in Roundstone has raised over £2,500 for its 2022 Charity of the Year, Canine Partners in West Sussex.

Throughout the past year, Haskins’ Roundstone team held various fundraising events in aid of Canine Partners, including collections and various challenges. The team also collected donations from customers via the Charity Wishing Well, which is placed at the centre’s exit.

Laura McCreadie, Community Engagement Officer at Canine Partners, said:

“We are really grateful for Haskins Roundstone Garden Centre’s generosity in supporting Canine Partners. The contributions have made a significant impact to the lives of people with physical disabilities, who will now have access to specially trained assistance dogs to help them lead more independent and fulfilling lives.  The donations from Haskins’ customers will help change lives for the better and for that, we are incredibly grateful.”

Mark Lephard, Trading Manager at Haskins, said:

“At Haskins Roundstone we select a chosen charity each year. For 2022, members of our team decided to support Canine Partners and the amazing work they carry out through our fundraising activity.

“The brilliant team at Canine Partners has been positive throughout the year, carrying out their invaluable work and helping so many people. Our team is proud to have raised a significant amount to help the charity continue the fantastic services they offer in our local community.”

Haskins Roundstone has selected Turning Tides, a provider of homeless services in West Sussex, as its 2023 Charity Partner of the Year.
