A purr-fect partnership

A local Howdens account holder and Binley depot donate time and money to Coventry Cat Group...

Howdens staff and account holder at Coventry Cat Group

Coventry Cat Group is a rescue charity for cats and kittens in the local area. One way it raises much-needed funds is by renting out two houses in the grounds of its offices, but keeping these in good condition can be a challenge. 

During the summer of 2015, local tradesman Ron Willets was refurbishing one of these properties. His work included installing a kitchen purchased through nearby Binley depot, but there was a lot more work needed throughout the house. Coventry Cat Group’s funds were running low, so depot manager Rebecca McClay agreed to donate additional products needed to get the work completed. This included units and materials that Ron adapted to create bathroom storage and shelving. 

Ron had a great team around him to help. Friends and fellow tradesmen Bernie, Graham, Rod and Connor, donated their time to get the job done as quickly as possible. The team installed Howdens’ products throughout the admin offices and hygiene rooms, where the cats are looked after and thanks to them our feline friends and those who look after them, now have a much cosier home.
