A door-to-door delivery service of own-brand pet food has raised money for charity in an innovative way.


Heights Farm Pet Foods in Preston and the Fylde is owned by Alison and Steve Critchley. They have been in business since 2018, and say their main focus is the health of pets.

Alison and Steve wanted to help a local charity after the past 18 months, which have been difficult for good causes.

Alison said: “After going through a few different ideas, we decided to reach out and join forces with another local small business, Fluffy Betty Bows.

“We came up with the idea of ‘Sausage Boxes For Charity’.

“Together, we filled boxes with our all-natural sausages and added a beautiful handmade bow. The proceeds from these then went to a cause close to both our hearts, Lancashire German Shepherd Rescue. 

“We are so proud to say we raised £350, which smashed our original goal of £100.”

Based in Warton, Lancashire German Shepherd Rescue was started in 2003.

Alison said: “The charity is run by Ted Kewley who launched it after realising how big a need there was in Lancashire for a charity to help and rehome German Shepherds.

“We first met Ted in 2019 and were in awe of what he was doing, and how he was transforming these beautiful dogs lives. To date, Ted has rescued 1,000 dogs.”

This promotion has been one of Heights Farm Pet Foods’ biggest to date, and they assured Blog Preston they have plenty more ideas for the future.
