A businessman plans to raise £500 to help support a homegrown charity close to his heart.
Animal lover Ryan Penniston, owner of special oven cleaning firm Ovenu Maidenhead, plans to donate £5 from every oven he cleans from now until the end of October to the independent charity CLAWS (Cat Lovers Animal Welfare Society).
The 23-year-old has two cats – Wispa and Eevie – and is planning to more charitable activities to support different animals in the future.
He said: “As a huge animal lover I think it is important to support such a great cause as CLAWS and I am happy to help out a local charity in this way. Hopefully, I will reach my target of £500, which will be of great use to the re-homing and rescue of endangered cats.
“I love cats, so CLAWS was the obvious choice, and I hope that in the future I can do my bit for many more great animal charities.”
CLAWS is a small, independent charity that has operated in Maidenhead for more than 20 years. It rescues, rehabilitates, vaccinates and re-homes abandoned stray cats and kittens.
Beverley Gubbins, one of CLAWS' trustees said: “It really is fantastic what Ryan is doing for us. The money will be of great use and we would like to thank him wholeheartedly.”
Ryan has been running his environmentally-friendly oven valeting service to homes and letting agencies in the Maidenhead area for just under a year.
