Linen up to help an­i­mal refuges

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Business -

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.”
