Local accountancy firm helps local RSPCA branch raise funds whilst doing their bit for the environment

Local accountancy firm helps local RSPCA branch raise funds whilst doing their bit for the environment

Following a rebrand in 2019 MHA Larking Gowen found themselves with an excess of old branded canvas bags. As the bags are great quality, rather than leave them to waste, MHA Larking Gowen are pleased to announce that two local charities have benefited from the donation.  

The first charity to benefit was a local fun run, with the bags being given out as goodie bags to the runners. The second batch of bags have been given to the local RSPCA Branch based in Martlesham. The Branch will be selling the bags for a small charge in their shops and at fundraising events with all proceeds going back into running their animal centre.

Kerry-Anne Lyme, Business Development Manager at MHA Larking Gowen, said, “We didn’t want to waste the bags and it was important for us that the bags were put to good use. I’m really pleased that the Branch will benefit from the donation. Please do go along to one of their four shops and support them and purchase a bag whilst you’re there.”

The RSPCA Suffolk East & Ipswich branch exists to help animals in need in our local area, through rehoming, rehabilitation and provision of services such as veterinary care, neutering, microchipping and advice.

Kim Puttock, Branch Manager at RSPCA Suffolk East & Ipswich, said, “We are very grateful to MHA Larking Gowen for this kind donation, every little helps in our fundraising activities. We don’t receive any money from the Government, or the National Lottery, and as the Branch is a separately registered charity from the National RSPCA, we are responsible for our own fundraising.

“In 2017, 95% of our income came from our own fundraising efforts, including events, our shops, donations from members of the public and legacies.”
