Parkhouse Pet Supplies latest to support Toy Appeal


A FAMILY company is happy to support a charitable cause close to its heart by making a generous donation to the 2021 Christmas Toy Appeal.

Dorchester-based Parkhouse Pet Supplies has made a very generous £ 100 donation to support this year’s Dorset Echo Christmas toy appeal – which is set to raise more than ever before.

Every penny of their donation is used to buy gifts for the children of Dorset who might otherwise go without on Christmas Day.

A spokesperson for Parkhouse Pet Supplies said: “We are a local family business that has been in the business for 32 years and we are grateful for the opportunity to donate to the Toy Appeal which is close to our hearts.”

Last year, the Dorset Echo raised its highest on record of £ 5,432 despite the pandemic, crushing the previous year’s total of £ 4,933.05.

It’s thanks to generous donations like this one from Parkhouse Pet Supplies, that the total is on track to be broken again this year.

The Marabout Industrial Zone-based company is a family-owned pet supplier offering a variety of food, toys and other supplies for various animals including dogs, cats, hamsters, horses and more. .

One difference last year was that due to the impact of the pandemic, the toy collection bins weren’t taken out, but it’s thanks to help from Weymouth Rotary that they’re no longer the case this year.

Debbie Hellaby Newsquest, Group Promotions Manager, said: “Sourcing, collecting and organizing toys for hundreds of children is no easy task, the toys are generally age appropriate and to the interests of each child individually.

“We are delighted to accept the support of the Rotary Club of Weymouth to facilitate the collection and collection of the toys. ”

Weymouth Rotary Club President Jerry Way said: “The Weymouth Rotary Club is proud to be part of the Echo Toys Appeal for 2021. This is a fabulous fundraiser to benefit children in the need of our community at Christmas.

“Well done to all of you at Echo, fantastic job.”

Toy donations made at collection points across Dorset were collected on Monday 6 December for distribution to younger children and are no longer in place.
