Edinburgh’s Business Leaders to Spend Charitable Day in the Dog House

Posted: 25th July 2017

ITDH2017 Landscape_linkedInEdinburgh’s top business leaders and influencers are set to spend a day in the dog house this October for a very good cause.

On 6 October 2017, Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home will lock 24 business leaders in its kennels to raise sponsorship for the city’s stray and abandoned dogs and cats.

Armed with only a laptop and a mobile phone, the business gurus have one working day to raise as much sponsorship funds as they can, in order to be released. A series of treats will awarded to mark their progress and the individual who raises the most money by the end of the day will be crowned Top Dog.

Business leaders currently signed up to take part in the event include entrepreneur and online BBC Dragon’s Den ‘Dragon’ Shaf Rasul and Liz McAreavey, CEO of the Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce.

For further information about In the Dog House, or to register your interest in taking part, please contact fundraising@edch.org.uk.
