Wood Green’s dedicated teams have pulled together during the Coronavirus crisis to continue caring for pets in need and be there for pet owners too. But it has been a very challenging time, with our ability to raise funds being hugely restricted following the temporary closure of our shops and postponement of public fundraising activities including face-to-face. We’re also expecting an increase in abandoned pets over the coming months.
With the ease of lockdown restrictions, we’re now pleased to be in a position where we can resume our face-to-face fundraising, and would like to reassure you about the steps we’re taking to keep the public and our staff safe at this time.
We have worked closely with our face-to-face fundraising agency partners to ensure that detailed risk assessments are in place and fundraisers are trained to put the safety and wellbeing of themselves, the public and their colleagues first. Our fundraisers will:
- Observe current social distancing guidelines and maintain a 2m distance from the public wherever possible.
- Follow strict cleanliness protocols, including frequently washing hands and sanitising fundraising equipment.
- Use Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) including face coverings, sanitiser gel and anti-bacterial wipes.
- Regular checks are in place to ensure supplies and correct use of PPE.
- Adhere to strict incident reporting procedures.
If you have any questions or feedback about our face-to-face fundraising, please get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0300 303 9876 select option 3.
Our face-to-face fundraising has temporarily ceased again from the 5th November 2020 until the end of the current lockdown in England. This form of fundraising is extremely important to our charity and we fully intend to restart our programme as soon as it is safe and legal to do so, in order that we can continue to fund our vital work for homeless pets in need.
In the meantime, find out how you can help us here. Many thanks for your support.
If you wish to contact us about our face-to-face fundraisers activities, then please call us on 0300 303 9876 (option 3), or email email@example.com. Please have the postcode of the area you are enquiring about to hand, as this will be useful for our team when investigating.
All of our fundraisers will be wearing Wood Green ID badges that displays their name, photo ID, and badge number.
