Animal charities receive donations

Jerry Green’s Dog Rescue, Cat-titude n Whiskers Cat Rescue and Scunthorpe's RSPCA all received donations from our staff as part of our ’25 days of Christmas’ campaign.

In total, 20 large boxes of dog toys, food and treats were donated to Jerry Green Dog Rescue, 15 large boxes of treats with similar items for cats were donated to Cat-titude n Whiskers cat rescue and £80 was donated to the Scunthorpe branch of the RSPCA.

Katie Walmsley, Ongo Works Planner and fundraising coordinator, said: “We’ve been doing lots of great things to support local charities and good causes but we didn’t want to forget about the local animal charities in our festive plans.

“Jerry Green’s, Ca-titude n Whiskers and the RSPCA all do such amazing work and rescue so many animals. We wanted to do our bit and give what we could. We ran a pet photo competition and raised £75 for the RSPCA. Staff also generously donated cat and dog toys, food, bedding and other treats which were greatly appreciated by Jerry Green’s and Catitude n Whiskers.”

Sue Brown, from Cat-titude n Whiskers, said: “This extremely generous donation means a huge amount to us. We rely heavily on donations and couldn’t keep going without them. We can have up to 60 cats in our care at any one time so to receive all of these toys, treats and food will go a long way. We’re really grateful to all the staff at Ongo.”

Other activities taking place in the '25 days of Christmas' campaign include; a festive bake off to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society, collecting food for local food banks, visiting local charities such as Lindsey Lodge to deliver festive treats, holding the Ongo Big Christmas Lunch and donating essential items to the Blue Door charity in Scunthorpe.

Fire drill notice

At 6.30pm today (21 June) we will be carrying out a pre-planned fire drill at Trent View House flats, in Scunthorpe. This drill was planned as part of our routine fire safety procedures. Everyone living at Trent View House has been made aware that this is just a drill. Following the fatal fire at Grenfell Tower, and after careful consideration, we have decided it is important to go ahead with the drill. We wish to inform the wider community that should they see activity at Trent View House that there is NO cause for alarm.
