All Creatures Great and Small Announced as Monmouthshire Building Society's Charity of the Year 2017

We were contacted by Monmouthshire Building Society to help them with their press release which was released in early May 2017. The entire press release is available to read here.

Monmouthshire Building Society has named All Creatures Great & Small as its latest Charity of the Year, with the aim to raise as much money as possible for the South Wales based animal sanctuary which helps rehabilitate and re-home injured, abused, unwanted and orphaned animals.

All Creatures Great and Small was found in 1992 and, since its inception, has helped thousands of animals gain a second chance at a new life, free from fear, abuse or neglect. The charity aims to rehome dogs, cats and other animals such as guinea pigs and rabbits, and also allows other animals that can't be rehomed, such as pigs, goats, ducks and horses to live out their lives in a peaceful, safe and secure environment.

The annual running costs of the Sanctuary amount to £250,000 and their team of dedicated staff and volunteers work tirelessly towards a better quality of life for all animals, doing whatever they can to help them avoid any pain or unnecessary suffering. They also rely on public donations of blankets, sheets, towels, cat and dog food.

Monmouthshire Building Society's 180 staff members, based in South Wales and the South West of England are determined to support the various fundraising campaigns taking place, as well as developing additional events which have been scheduled across the next 12 months.

Commenting on the announcement, Chief Executive James Bawa said: "As a regional building society, it's important to actively support our local communities, and it's refreshing to partner up with a grassroots organisation such as All Creatures for this year long programme of events. With costs rising annually, and a seemingly endless number of animals who have been neglected or abandoned, every single penny counts and will have a lasting impact on the many animals who have thankfully been taken into their care."

He continued: "The charity was chosen by our own staff members who were inspired by reported in the local press regarding the difficult financial situation All Creatures had found themselves in during the previous year. It's heart-warming to know that so many animals have been given a second chance at a life with new owners, not to mention the other animals who remain with them on their nine acre farm, and we can't wait to get to work raising as much money as possible to help in some way towards their services continuing for many years to come."

Matt Nicholls, Centre Manager, said: "We're delighted to be Monmouthshire Building Society's Charity of the Year 2017, and I would like to thank their staff members in advance for their support which is essential for us to continue our essential services for animals in need."

He continued: "We receive no support from the Government, so our work wouldn't be possible without the generosity of the public. I'm excited to see what Monmouthshire Building Society plan for the year ahead and i'll also be keeping my eyes peeled to see if any of our animals find themselves a forever home with any Society staff members!"

We are thrilled to have received so much amazing feeback about our Edwardian open day on Saturday 15th July.
