Admin students take the lead raising cash for dog shelter

A sponsored ‘Walkies’ helped Falkirk Campus based NC Administration students raise cash for Bandeath Dog Shelter in Throsk.

The group of students – Rachel Reid (48) from Falkirk,  Zoe Day (19) from Falkirk, Emily Burnett (18) Falkirk, Sam Johnston (24) from Grangemouth, Asim naeem (21) from Falkirk and Anne Marie Spawton (32) from Polmont – walked around The Helix and Callander Parks in Falkirk to raise more than £770 for the Stirling Council run facility. They also sold tickets for a guess the number of sweeties in a jar and a prize winning Tombola.

The money raised will go to essential supplies for the shelter and also for some toys and agility equipment.

Sam Johnston, said:

“This fundraising effort started off as an important part of our course, but the more we found out about the shelter, the closer it became to our hearts than we imagined. We really enjoyed raising money for this great cause and it was great to come down and hand in the cash we raised and see what they do and the dogs, at first hand.

“To show how creative and committed we have been with our fundraising, Asim even suggested that we form the amount we raised with cans of dog food down at the shelter, rather than just hand over a big cheque which was a great idea. ”

Anne Vines, Kennel Keeper at Bandeath, said:

“The generosity of the students has been amazing.  Such a large amount will go a long way.  I've been looking to get new exercise and agility equipment for the dogs and this will certainly contribute greatly."
