In dogs we trust
The Target Windows team are hiking 24.5 miles across the mountains of Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-y-ghent to complete the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge, in aid of raising vital funds for the Dogs Trust.
The team will be led by the director of Target Windows, Guy Basnett, and will also include Nicky and Rich Green, Sam and Jodie Plant, and Mick Tune. All are preparing to take on this challenge on Saturday August 21.
Team Target decided to take on this challenge to raise money for the company’s chosen charity, Dogs Trust, as all dog lovers and are passionate about the amazing work they do. Dogs Trust work hard to run 21 rehoming centres across the UK with the aim to protect more than 16,000 dogs annually – focusing on the rehabilitation and rehoming of dogs that have been either abandoned or given up by their owners.
Target Windows started working with Dogs Trust in 2011. In just over 10 years, Team Target has completed 15 projects at Dogs Trust kennels at: Loughborough, Evesham, Basildon, Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds, Salisbury, Brighton, Darlington, Cardiff, Shrewsbury, Kenilworth, Glasgow, Newbury and Canterbury. These projects involve installing specially adapted windows and doors in their rehoming centres to help create a comfortable environment for the dogs.
Guy Basnett, director of Target Windows, said: “They were spending a lot of extra money making and ordering acoustic barriers out of expensive hardwood to keep the noise from the barking down to a minimum.
“We suggested that they could change these to PVCU, which is maintenance free and a lot cheaper. From that job, we have completed many installations, from refurbishments of their existing centres to installing at their new ones. We have the ability to help insulate the dogs’ kennels and help to create a comfy environment for them, which is fantastic, because we’re all dog lovers.”
