Ethical Giving This Christmas at Shipshape Cleaning

Every year we give all our employees a gift for Christmas, normally wine or chocolates.

This year we have decided to give ethically, and our chosen charity is Hillside Animal sanctuary, based in Frettenham in Norwich.

Their website is

Hillside is now home to over 2000 animals and is one of the UK’s most successful campaigning organisations for the animals’ cause. Most of their rescued animals have been saved from the farming industry, Hillside is home to over 700 horses, ponies, donkeys and mules.

But, it is not just horses, ponies, donkeys and mules but a whole host of animals, including pigs, cattle, sheep, birds and more…. See this link to their website for the number of animals they have:

They have rehomed 787 dogs and currently have 72 looking for their forever homes……

This year we have gifted a Bale of Hay per employee. This donation of a ‘Gift of Hay’ is to help feed Hillside’s rescued animals, in lieu of a present. We have then sent to our employees a Hillside Greetings Card, 2014 Hillside Calendar and a Gift Certificate.

We like this alternative to the normal wine or chocolates at Christmas and we know that the money is helping support and look after the animals at the Sanctuary, and we are very pleased to be supporting them this year.
