Headstar takes the lead at animal charity

A 12-strong team of volunteers from Leeds-based finance recruiter Headstar donated a day of their time to support Hull Animal Welfare Trust, a charity that cares for and rehomes unwanted pets. The team wasted no time in getting stuck in, helping with everything from preparing food and washing dog baskets, through to sorting donations and delivering supplies to the centre’s charity shop in Hull. The team also found time to bond with the centre’s dogs over walks and socialise with the cats – with one member of Headstar’s team, Rachel Porteous (above, left), striking up such a bond with one of the feline residents, Milo, that she ended up adopting him! The Donate A Day initiative is part of Headstar’s employee wellbeing programme.
