BUSHMILLS Distillery has announced that its chosen charity for 2013 is Benvardin Animal Rescue Kennels (BARK).

Distillery staff are looking forward to working closely the BARK team throughout the year.

The partnership kicked off with a St. Patrick’s event in the 1608 Bar at the Distillery, which raised a total of £1135. This will be doubled by Bushmills Distillery, giving a grand sum of £2,270 for BARK.

The Distillery is planning to hold a number of events throughout the year, including one every month. Plans are also in place to hold an extra special Open Day to celebrate BARK’s third birthday on August 3.

Louise and Shaun from Benvardin kennels are pictured with the staff from the Distillery, some of their dogs and two Huskamutes that are available for adoption from the kennels.

‘Kody’ and ‘Kaya’ were very kindly groomed for their photos by Ian from Alpha 1 Dog Training & Dog Grooming and Jollyes in Coleraine very kindly supplied the matching harnesses and leads free of charge.
