WEC Group Selects Bleakholt Animal Sanctuary as their Charity of the Year for 2024!

We have recently revealed that we have chosen Bleakholt Animal Sanctuary for our Charity of the Year 2024.

WEC have been championing local causes for the past 14 years, selecting a different worthy cause at the start of each year to channel all their fundraising efforts towards.

Bleakholt is a local animal charity located in Ramsbottom, Lancashire. They take in animals that are unlikely to be rehomed due to age or illness and provide sanctuary to them for the rest of their lives. They try to make their stay as close to a home as possible by having special dedicated oldies areas. They continue to support these animals in homes so they have a better chance at finding their forever home.

Mr Hartley stated “We are grateful for our staff’s ongoing contribution towards our Charity of the Year and I look forward to see how much we can raise for this amazing charity. Once again, we would like to say a huge thank you to our employees, customers and suppliers for their kind donations.”

Our staff are no stranger to fundraising challenges, having most recently raised an incredible £9,365 for Blackburn & Darwen Youth Zone in 2023 and £8,592 for Dementia UK back in 2022. This was achieved through corporate charity golf days, sponsored walks, raffles and numerous bake sales.
