We were delighted when the Pets at Home Head Office in Handforth got in touch to see how they could help us out.
The staff each get one day per year to Volunteer with a local charity, so nine of them came down to improve our office space for us, by painting and decorating with their ‘Paint A Door Day’.
Here’s what they had to say about the day:
Thank you again for such a great day, we all said how much we enjoyed it but also how good it felt to help you guys out – we really hope you are happy with your newly painted offices!
Pets At Home provide all colleagues with a Charity Day, and the Food Buying Team decided that we wanted to help a local Charity. Mind is an organisation that is close to every single person in our team, we wanted to give something back to you at Stockport Mind. The team were up to help paint your office. Once complete we stood back and realised what a difference we had made, a bright and light environment to enable you to do the amazing work you do!
After listening to you explain what the Stockport Mind team does, we all felt proud that we could take a day out and help you, like you give to the community every single day. Its mind blowing that you run such an amazing charity with such a small team, we all acknowledged what a difference each of you make. We all had the preconception that you were a huge charity with loads of funding, and this certainly isn’t the case.
Thank you so much to each and every one of the Pets At Home team who came down to help, and it’s lovely to hear such kind words in their quote above.
We were really glad to be able to share lunch with them all, and it’s great that they carried their team building day on into the evening with drinks and food!
Below are some photos of the work in progress.
