Last year we were supported by Alpha Heating Innovation, one of the heating industry’s leading lights within the UK. Alpha sponsored European Tour golfer Jack Senior and to further their partnership, chose to support our charity by donating for every birdie and eagle that Jacks scored during each tournament.
If you had a chance to read our latest blog article, you will have read about one of our Veterans Paul, who is employed by Alpha as a Field Service Engineer. It is because of Paul that Veterans with Dogs are a charity close to Alpha’s hearts and why we were chosen as their charity for this.
Throughout the year, Alpha followed Jack’s journey and posted regular updates of his progress across their social media channels, tagging us in posts each time to notify us whenever a donation was going to be made - which was a lovely surprise for us all to cheer about!
In addition to the tournament, Alpha organised a fundraising golf day with Jack where he auctioned off some of his clubs raising an amazing £350.
We are so incredibly thankful for the support Alpha gave us last year and are happy to announce that £1500 was raised in total for our charity.
“We have witnessed first-hand the positive impact that Veterans with Dogs can have on a person through the work they do. Paul’s life would be very different today if it wasn’t for Holly and the training she received in order to become an assistance dog. It’s been our pleasure to support this amazing charity and help them to continue offering assistance to other veterans.” - Catherine Lawrence at Alpha Heating Innovation
The impact of corporate fundraising
At Veterans with Dogs, we value our corporate sponsors such as Alpha, who have provided not only vital funds for our life-changing work but also our dedicated employees.
As a charity, we provide our services to recipients free of charge, so it is crucial we raise the funds required to cover the cost of raising, training, boarding, lifetime medical care and of course, the placement of an assistance dog. Alongside this we cover the costs for the life of every assistance dog placed with a veteran, which means we need considerable help to continue with our mission to help improve quality of life.
“Corporate support and sponsorships are vital to us at Veterans With Dogs, to enable us to continue providing assistance dogs for the mental health and welfare of our Veterans. Not only has Alpha been wonderfully supportive of Paul and his assistance dog but were kind enough to recognise his amazing partnership and reached out to us to fundraise on our behalf through their own partnership with Jack Senior. Every penny makes a huge difference to the charity, so we are delighted to have received £1500 in sponsorship from Alpha” - Craig MacLellan, Founder of Veterans with Dogs
