Hull’s unwanted cats and dogs get a lift from local company

Hull’s unwanted cats and dogs are set to benefit from a cash donation made by the local branch of a national lift company.

Pickerings Lifts has made a donation to Hull Animal Welfare Trust to help care for the animals at its shelter in South Cave.

The charity has helped rehome over 30,000 animals since it was formed by a group of volunteers in 1982 and ensures healthy animals are never destroyed and animals in distress are always taken in.

The shelter relies heavily on donations to allow it to stay open 365 days a year and match animals with loving owners. As part of their service, the Trust neuters animals to help tackle the unwanted animal problem.

The £200 donation is a welcome boost to the shelter and will go directly to the care and attention of the animals.

Ian Woodward, regional manager at Pickerings’ Hull branch, said: “The dedication of this organisation really shines through. For local people to have somewhere to take animals in need, 365 days of the year is fantastic.”

Pickerings Lifts is committed to supporting its local communities across the UK and are involved in a large number of charity-focused initiatives that improve the lives and outcomes of local people.

Sue Sewell from Hull Animal Welfare Trust said: “We are always looking to enrich the lives of the animals, whilst they are in our care, so the passion and the fundraising goes on.”

Pickerings Lifts, a fifth generation family-owned business, is the UK’s leading lift specialist. Established over 160 years ago, Pickerings has a national network of depots that specify, design, install, upgrade, maintain and repair all types of lifts, escalators, loading systems and mobility equipment across many sectors, for many different kinds of businesses.
