Popular Liverpool restaurant Mowgli Street Food are teaming up with Claire House Children’s Hospice and their four-legged friends to announce the Mowgli Trust Dog Show in aid of the charity.
Mowgli Street Food based on Water Street, Liverpool, have been supporting Claire House over the past year, raising £65,000 with their £1 on the bill initiative. But staff wanted to come up with a fun way of raising more funds for the charity.
Nisha Katona, founder of Mowgli, said: “We are all about family at Mowgli, staff and diners alike and for many of us, pets are at the heart of our homes. At Mowgli we take our relationship with our adopted house charities very seriously, and my teams look to finding exciting ways to support their charity siblings.
“Like Mowgli herself, an idea started to nag me- how do we celebrate the Mowgli family, staff and clients, two legged and four and maximise what we can raise for Claire House Children’s Hospice at a time where they dearly need help. The hugely heart-warming answer was The Mowgli Trust Dog Show which will donate all its profits to the remarkable work of Claire House.”
Claire House Children’s Hospice helps seriously and terminally ill children live life to the full.The hospice helps families smile again when life couldn’t get any tougher.
Dan Halliday, Relationships Manager at Claire House said: “At the moment, Claire House are not reaching every child who desperately needs our help, so events like the Mowgli Trust Dog Show are fantastic in helping us to raise awareness of the work we do.
“We’re fortunate that both Mowgli and Claremont Farm are passionate supporters of ours, and so to have a collaborative event for families is going to be incredible. All of our children and staff are so excited for the first ever Mowgli Trust Dog Show- especially all of the dog lovers.”
The Mowgli Trust Dog Show will take place at Claremont Farm on Sunday 23rdSeptember 11am-5pm, and consist of 12 categories, including best short haired, best sausage catcher, and child’s best friend.
Andrew Pimbley, Managing Director at Claremont Farm, said: “Claremont couldn’t be prouder to be hosting the first ever Mowgli Trust Dog Show and getting the chance to raise vital funds for Claire House Children’s Hospice, our fantastic neighbours.”
With good food and craft beer stalls, interactive children’s activities throughout the day and celeb show announcers, the event will cater for a wide demographic of consumers. For us it is critical that good, dynamic sponsoring brand sponsors like ourselves can tell their brand story on the day. This is a fantastic opportunity for all parties and is a great way to weave all our businesses into the fabric of our target audiences within the North West local community.
