Wolverhampton vet team’s crafting skills raise money for charity

White Cross Vets’ client care coordinator Kerry Bunn has been creating a wide range of accessories which are being sold to raise money for local pet rescue charities

A budding crafting queen who works at White Cross Vets in Wolverhampton is putting her sewing skills to the test by producing a range of dog walking bags, collars, bandanas and key rings which are being sold in the practice to raise money for local pet rescue charities.

Kerry Bunn has been a client care coordinator at the Penn Road practice for the last three and a half years, as well as being a keen crafter in her spare time and supporting the practice’s charity endeavours.

She then decided to begin producing a range of products that pet owners could buy and her bags, collars, bandanas and keyrings, which all cost between £2.50 and £9.50, are immediately proving popular.

In the first two months, sales of the products raised almost £100 for Wings & Paws Animal Rescue in Wolverhampton, which is a non-profit voluntary animal rescue, created to ensure neglected, stray, feral or unloved animal have the best chance of finding a forever home.

A different charity will now benefit every two months, with Raven’s Rescue UK being the current beneficiary. The registered charity was founded to help pets that find themselves in need of rescue or have fallen on hard times.

Kerry said: “I love all types of crafting, whether it’s knitting, sewing, drawing or crocheting, and I began thinking about how else we could support the local pet rescue charities that we already work with.

“Making a range of dog collars, bandanas, key rings, and dog bags, that can hold balls, poo bags and treats, to sell was an obvious option. We’ve now decided to support a different charity every two months, so as many organisations as possible can benefit and we’re very pleased that the products are proving popular with clients and visitors at White Cross Vets.”

The products are available to buy at White Cross Vets, 333A Penn Road, Wolverhampton, WV4 5QF. For further information call 01902 599 880.
