Staff streak for Battersea Dogs’ and Cats’ Home

During the month of May, female staff and some of their dogs, at Battersea Dogs’ and Cats’ Home have come up with an eye-catching and novel way of raising funds and awareness for all the lost and abandoned dogs and cats that come into their care; they’re streaking…their hair blue.

Last year, the male staff grew their beards for six itchy weeks and raised over £5,000 for beds, toys and other essentials for the animals, and the ladies are hoping to beat the boys and raise even more.

Fiona Healey-Hutchinson, Director of Fundraising, said, “Streaking our hair in our signature ‘Battersea Blue’ has been great fun and loads of staff have taken part. We hope to raise lots of money and beat the boys in the process. The lucky winner who raises the most funds will get a cut and blow dry from hairdresser-to-the-stars, Nicky Clarke. It’s a great incentive to get that sponsorship rolling in.”
