We're hosting a Pet Portrait Competition
Our team in Reddish are encouraging local pet owners to take part in a great new competition which could result in them winning a hamper for their beloved companion as well as help Reeds Rains to raise much needed funds to support disadvantaged children locally.
The Pet Portrait competition, which is running from now until 14 May, encourages owners of pets (of any kind) to submit a photo of their beloved companion into one of three categories with prizes being awarded for either; the Cutest, Craftiest or Cheekiest Cat, the Daftest, Dreamiest, or most Daring Dog or the Weirdest, Wackiest, Critter.
The cost to enter is just £2 with all donations going to the grant-giving charity, Cash for Kids, which, this year, will culminate in a special Reeds Rains sponsored, Cash for Kids Day, on Friday 14 May 2021. Fundraising will specifically support local families who have been pushed into poverty, perhaps as a result of the pandemic, with the provision of grants to cover essentials such as food and heating.
Heather Gettings, the Lettings Manager at Reeds Rains in Reddish commented:
“We really want to help raise funds to support disadvantaged children in our local community and, as we’re quite restricted in our fundraising this year, decided that holding a competition of this kind was a great idea - especially as so many people have relied on their pets, or become pet owners, during the recent lockdowns. What better way to celebrate the support, and enjoyment, that pets have given and, at the same time, help others in need locally?
Entering the competition is really easy:
- Simply access our special Cash for Kids fundraising page (details below)
- Donate £2 (or more if you prefer)
- Email your entry to Reddish@reedsrains.co.uk, adding:
Subject Line: Pet Picture Competition
Details within the email: name of owner, name and description of pet and a contact number.
Judging will take place shortly after May 14th (Cash for Kids Day) and we’ll then contact winners to arrange to hand over their prizes.
We hope that, following quite a difficult year for many, that this will bring some light relief and, importantly, make sure that those who continue to face difficulties know that their local community are doing all we can to support them."
