Fundraising for British Heart Foundation

£221.73 Raised for the British Heart Foundation.

Early in the year we began fundraising for the British Heart Foundation. Each of our Gladwells Pet & Country Stores had a donation pot for customers to drop change into. A small prize raffle was also held at the new Stowmarket store opening day to raise funds for the charity. We are happy to say the stores raised £221.73! Thank you to any customers that contributed to this total, especially during the months of uncertain lockdown.


Here at Copdock Mill we hosted a donation collection bin where staff could drop off items such as clothes to be donated to the Ipswich British Heart Foundation shop. The bin was filled and collected on multiple occasions which will hopefully further the final total and support the vital research the charity is responsible for.

We consider ourselves fortunate enough to support this amazing charity during unprecedented times. If you would like to join us in donating, find how you can help here.

Refit at Gladwells Pet & Country Store, Rayleigh

Over the past couple of months, the team at Gladwells Pet & Country Store in Rayleigh have been busy updating the store.

The refit project start date was 12th July 2020. Project Objectives included:

  • Replacing 90% of the existing shelving in the shop area.
  • Painting existing interior walls, front doors & exterior walls.
  • Installing new till counters with improved serving area.
  • Reinstating the Wild Bird range and freezers into the shop area with a complete redesign of layout of shelving and products to create an improved shopping experience.

Local recyclers TLM picked up 2.3 Tons of Heavy Metal shelving which was removed from the shop floor as it was too old and not compatible to reuse through any of our other branches.

A huge amount of work was involved in this project and Darren (Regional Branch Manager) and Mark (Store Manager) would like to say a massive thank you to everyone involved! Mark is now a very happy and proud Branch Manager!
