Laughing Dog knits for the Guide Dogs
This year the Laughing Dog bakery is raising funds and awareness for the Guide Dogs, with a target of £5,000 to enable us to fund a puppy’s entire training. With multiple activities already under our belts, two members of the team, Lynn and Sue, have challenged the nation to get out their knitting needles...
We're Sue and Lynn, proud members of the Laughing Dog food team. When we're not busy in the farm bakery helping to make our naturally tasty recipes (and carefully hand-decorating those scrumptious oven-baked biscuit bones you all love!), we like to spend our spare time knitting and taking on craft projects.
Knitting, in particular, is a much loved hobby of ours, and we love challenging ourselves to come up with new and inventive creations. We simply could not imagine life without sight - a change that would impact both work and our passion for craft.
Putting our enthusiasm for knitting to good use (and our love of dogs!), we are going to be knitting some very special blankets to help raise funds for the Guide Dogs. Using double knit wool to create multiple 6" squares in various different colours, we plan to make as many blankets as we can (our ambition is to create enough squares to make multiple blankets!). If you to love to knit and would like to lend a hand, simply pop an email to [email protected] and we'll explain how you can get involved.
Once our knitted creations are complete, we'll auction them off to help raise even more valuable funds for this incredible charity.
There's no stopping us once we start knitting, but if you are able to spare a few pennies to spur us on and help raise much needed funds for the Guide Dogs in the process, we'd be most delighted. If you wish to donate plese see our Just Giving page here.
With very best wishes,
