Invopak recently came to the rescue of the West Yorkshire Dog Rescue (WYDR) – a Huddersfield based charity that re-homes dogs in need.

The charity sent an urgent plea to packaging manufacturers asking for donations of drums to be used as food bins in collection points around the region. Dave Pennington at Invopak’s HQ in Hyde, responded as soon as he heard of the charity’s plight and pledged 11 bins which have been modified and placed with local companies for people to fill with donations of food, bedding, collars, leads and other dog related items desperately needed.

WYDR Fundraiser, Julianne Hammond, says, “Donations of food is a constant struggle and we hope that by Invopak donating these drums, our food quantities will be constant and increased.   The kind and generous gestures of companies such as Invopak enable us to carry out this vital and important work.” 

Since the Rescue’s inception four years ago – West Yorkshire Dog rescue has re-homed nearly 900 dogs - find out more about the great work they do by visiting
