Search Laboratory raises a massive £12k for local charity
There’s more than a few happy hounds in Leeds this week as local digital marketing agency, Search Laboratory, has announced they have raised an impressive £12.6k for the Guide Dogs charity. Having partnered with the charity, which trains guide dogs to help people with sight loss, as its chosen charity for two years, the whole Search Laboratory team has teamed up to organise a series of different initiatives to raise the grand total.
From bake sales and climbing the three peaks to sponsoring a puppy and undertaking supported runs, of the 150 strong team at Search Laboratory has dug deep to raise funds for the charity, which was chosen after being put forward by one of the staff. Thanks to the large sum raised, the team was asked by the charity to name two of the adorable pooches who were in training to become a qualified guide dog with the charity.
Amandeep Raan, Charity Leader at Search Laboratory, commented: “Local charity initiatives form a massive part of our work life here at Search Laboratory; in addition to our charity partner, we’re each allowed to take two days off work in order to volunteer and get involved in local events and initiatives. It’s been great to see how much dedication and effort the entire Search Laboratory family has invested into raising vital funds for Guide Dogs.
“There have been so many different fun and exciting initiatives to raise money for the Guide Dogs, it’s hard to pinpoint a particular highlight. However a moment that really sticks out as being rewarding has been learning all about the important work Guide Dogs do in helping to enhance quality of the life for those that require support. That, and of course when we got to meet one of the guide dogs we named. We really think he suits his new name, Ziggy.”
