March 28, 2012, 6:30 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- He may be the new mascot for a Chester hospice charity, but that didn't prevent Pawz from getting the sack from a local motor company last week.
In fact, Pawz ended up with kennel-loads of sacks from The Funding Corporation (TFC) when he called to collect the donations made by many of the firm's 200-plus staff.
As part of the company's charity support programme, employees were invited to recycle unwanted gifts and other items for the Hospice of the Good Shepherd in Backford, Chester.
Their donations - which included games, DVDs, books and clothing - will now go on sale in the hospice's six charity shops in and around the city.
The charity needs to raise over £6,000 every day to continue its work in caring for those living with incurable illnesses, and supporting their friends, families and carers.
Its funding relies largely on donations from the local community, and last year these enabled the hospice to care for more than 1,500 people from the Chester area.
TFC Marketing Manager Jane Whittle, who also heads the firm's charity committee, said the volume of donations, which included many brand new items, was "staggering".
The company also has a number of other fundraising events planned throughout the year in aid of the Hospice, its nominated local charity for 2012, and company Directors have kindly agreed to match funds raised by staff.
