Amivet is delighted to announce that we have become a corporate sponsor of Manchester based charity for the homeless, ‘Barnabus’, for 2016-17. Andrew Iveson and Jemma Webley recently attended the Beacon Centre to present Carol Price, Development and Fundraising Manager for Barnabus, with a cheque for £500.
Barnabus was chosen because it fits well with Amivet’s ethos and core work. Barnabus has been providing nourishing food and support for people living on the streets of Manchester for 25 years and as Amivet’s main role is in food exports, this ties in well. The donation will be used to buy vital food supplies for the charity to keep supporting the homeless. Also, a major factor in homelessness is mental health issues, which is also a current concern in the veterinary profession.
Amivet also wanted to work with a local charity that is run predominantly by volunteers.
Amivet are hoping to be able to provide some volunteering time over the next year to help in the Beacon drop in centre, or on other projects such as the allotment or Renu upcycling furniture scheme, and make a further donation at the end of 2017.
