Take Your Dog to Work Day

For the third year in a row ScHARR Library opened its doors to our resident hairy librarian, Thatcher Tattersall, all in the name of charity and the national Take Your Dog to Work Day. For those of you already lost, Thatcher is a labrador-Retriever belonging to ScHARR Library blogger Andy Tattersall. The good deed was in aid of The Blue Cross which is a registered UK animal welfare charity.
Their aims are to:
ensure the welfare of animals by providing practical care
highlight the benefits of companionship between animals and people
promote a sense of respect and responsibility towards animals in the community

As part of the day staff from ScHARR were treated to a selection of wonderful cakes baked by fellow information officers Claire Beecroft and Diana Papaioannou and HEDs Administrator
Clare Watson as well as the odd lick and sniff from Thatcher. I would go a little further into the details of these cakes which consisted of chocolate cake, marble cake, banana cake and marble cake, but it would be unfair to leave you drooling at your keyboard.

There was a guess the dog sweepstake and along with the cake sales we managed to raise a total of £92.50 - which was pretty much on par with last year's figure. Thanks to everyone who contributed to the day either through baking or cash contributions and of course thanks to Thatcher for making it into work once again this year and for not peeing in the library, we have enough with the staff and students doing that.
