We're so pleased to be the first sponsor of Suffolk Libraries UK PAWS-itivity fundraising campaign.

PAWS-itivity is Suffolk Libraries biggest ever fundraising campaign which will see colourful dog sculptures in all of the county’s libraries this summer. The ‘Library Labradors’ will all feature designs individually created by local artists.

The event aims to raise money to support Suffolk Libraries work at the heart of the community. It will also raise awareness of Suffolk Libraries as an independent charity that needs additional funding to nurture literacy, improve health and wellbeing and create accessible arts opportunities for local people.

Sarah Frost, Marketing Manager, said:
“At John Grose we try to support as many charities in the local community as we can, and with this campaign being linked to an appreciation of the arts, it seemed like a natural choice for our DS brand to be involved in too, with many artists being involved in the creation of our new DS vehicles.”

The team here at John Grose took a shine to the concept of these positive pooches and our accident and repair centre have created an amazing Golden Labrador to mark our sponsorship to help support the amazing work Suffolk Libraries does in communities across Suffolk as a charity.

The aim is for all the dogs to appear at the Suffolk Show later this year before appearing in libraries. They will then return to Trinity Park to be auctioned in October.
