On Monday we had the great pleasure of meeting British Model David Gandy & his friend Larry King, they popped into our walk in shop here in Hackney Wick for a chat & a quick photo – we all know David from the famous Dolce & Gabbana ad campaigns set on a boat in Capri advertising one of their fragrance’s shot by the legendary Mario Testino and not to mention the countless other amazing modeling campaigns.
The reason for this weeks blog was not just to share our excitement of our A-lister visitor but to tell you about the amazing work David does as an Ambassador for Battersea Dogs & Cats home. As we come from a very close family and love animals we very often have the family visiting us in our office along with our two other family members the dogs Ted & Ruby (they are treated less like pets and more like humans).
So of course David being incredibly fond of animals dogs in particular of course Ted & Ruby became the talking point (what is new) and so we found a little bit a about how Battersea Dogs & Cats Home have a programme that they need volunteers for fostering dogs – “We’re always looking for some exceptional people to offer foster care to some of Battersea’s dogs from all of our sites. Our dogs sometimes require special attention if they need medical treatment, are feeling stressed in our kennels or we need to see how they get on in a home environment.” Battersea Dogs & Cats Home Dog Fostering >> Link for more information http://www.battersea.org.uk/dogs/fostering/
Ted is a rescue dog so we know how rewarding it is. So fostering was something we were interested in finding out more about & we thought others might too.
David Gandy popping in was not only a great boost for us here at SNF but it was also inspiring to us – it was a pleasure meeting such an intelligent, friendly SUPERSTAR!
