Linen up to help animal refuges
THE Shenton Park Dogs’ Refuge Home and Cat Haven replenished their linen stocks with 1300 towels donated by Fresh Fields Hospitality Services last Thursday.
“With so many nursing homes in the Hall & Prior family, we do a lot of washing at Fresh Fields,” operations manager Kevin Fitzgerald said.
“In an average year we wash more than 500,000 towels, along with more than a million facecloths and more than 160,000 bed sheets.
“The towels we donated are not able to be used in our homes any more, but they are still good enough for the dogs and cats in Shenton Park.”
Hall & Prior chief executive Graeme Prior said he was pleased to have the opportunity to help the rescue organisations.
“With our two Subiaco homes St Lukes and Hamersley so close to these refuges, it really is a case of helping the community we are part of,” Mr Prior said.
“I’m glad that these old towels will be able to make a difference in the lives of these animals while they wait to be adopted.”
