Bruce’s raises over £1,300 for Raystede animal charity

Bruce’s Doggy Day Care has raised more than £1,360 by holding a fundraising event for Raystede’s Centre for Animal Welfare, an East Sussex-based charity.

The event, Bruce’s Pool Pawty, took place last Saturday (30 September) at the Saltdean Lido, East Sussex to support Raystede’s mission to rescue, rehabilitate, and find homes for animals in need across the region.

Brought to life by the team at Bruce’s Ditchling Brighton centre, Bruce’s customers both canine and human were invited to take a dip in the pool. More than 100 dogs, 119 swimming dog parents, and an additional 74 spectators participated.

The event also included a charity raffle.

Bruce’s Doggy Day Care Founder Bruce Casalis said: “We couldn’t be happier with the success of Bruce’s Pool Pawty and the incredible support we received.

“We’re proud to have raised over £1,360 so far for Raystede.”

Mikayla Burnstein, Corporate Partnerships Manager from Raystede, added: “We’re so grateful to Bruce’s Doggy Daycare and all their human and canine customers for raising the amazing amount of £1,360 for Raystede. 

“This will be enough to provide food for all the dogs in our kennels for nearly two months which will make a big difference. We receive no government funding so rely entirely on the support of our local community to help us continue our vital work.”

Tracy Adams, Head of People at Bruce’s, noted that this event is the beginning for Bruce’s charity partnerships endeavours. “At Bruce’s, we are committed to supporting the communities local to each of our day care centres. Charitable giving plays a big part in this,” she said.

“We identify local animal welfare charities and undertake fundraising activities amongst our colleagues and customers to support our chosen charities. We currently support Raystede linked to our Ditchling and Tunbridge Wells centres, and Birmingham Dogs Home linked to our Solihull centre, for which we are a Silver Business Patron.”
