M&S Fort Kinnaird lead Christmas Support for Edinburgh’s Unwanted Dogs and Cats
M&S Fort Kinnaird visited Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home today to hang the first bauble on their supporter Christmas tree.
Cathie Wallace, M&S Community Champion, and Calum Nicol, Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home’s Partnerships Fundraiser, were joined by lurcher Leo as they kicked off Christmas celebrations at the Home.
Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home is appealing to businesses and members of the public to support them this Christmas with donations, food and toys. Local businesses who donate will be invited to hang a branded bauble on their tree, while individuals will have the opportunity to dedicate theirs on behalf of a pet or loved one.
Calum Nicol, Partnerships Fundraiser at Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home, said:
“Christmas is a really busy time at Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home, as we continue to care for nearly 100 stray and unwanted dogs and cats, with new arrivals daily. This year we’re asking local businesses and the public to consider a donation to the Home, and in return they can make a special dedication on our tree.
“I would like to extend the Home’s sincere thanks to M&S Fort Kinnaird who have supported us throughout the year. It is fitting that they are the first to hang their bauble on our Christmas tree!”
