Coombe Abbey Hotel donates blankets to Dogs Trust pooches

Lauren Clarke 11th Dec, 2016

HOMELESS hounds will be able to snuggle up warm this winter thanks to a generous donation from a Coventry hotel.

Coombe Abbey Hotel presented the pooches at the Dogs Trust Kenilworth with cosy bedspreads as an early Christmas present.

Carron Brown, head housekeeper at Coombe Abbey, said the rehoming charity seemed the perfect choice for the donation.

She explained: “I am a big animal lover and want to show support in any way possible, that is why I chose the Dogs Trust.

“I don’t have a dog of my own as I work full time, so making this donation is mine and Coombe Abbey’s way of giving a little help to the charity.

Last year Coombe Abbey replaced the bedding in its 119 rooms and donated the old linens to homeless charity Helping Hands.

Ron Terry, general manager at the 12th century venue, added: “We think it is very important to be in the heart of the community and show support to good causes such as the Dogs Trust and Helping Hands.

“We are all so pleased that these bedspreads can be put to good use by the Trust and help make sure that they keep its residents warm throughout the winter.”

Dogs Trust Kenilworth is the largest of the charity’s centres and cares for around 180 dogs at any one time.

Thanking hotel staff for their generous donation, Sandra Foulds, rehoming centre manager at Dogs Trust Kenilworth, said: “Gestures like this mean that the dogs in our care can stay cosy this winter, and we’re sure the homeless hounds will enjoy snuggling up.”
