From Bowsers to Bow-Wows

Monday, September 28th, 2009

Whilst Wendy, our Managing Director was on Holiday in Spain, she heard on the local radio station that there was a dog sanctuary in need of some help. The well at the sanctuary had run dry and so it was struggling to keep all of the 200+ animals watered. Although the sanctuary were not asking for funds, they were desperate for people to send them water.

Being a dog lover herself, Wendy got straight on the phone when she arrived back in Rochdale and offered to send them a water bowser courtesy of Bowser Supply.

So the race was on to get the water bowser to Spain. Wendy started to ring around all of our customers who send machinery abroad, and someone gave us the name of a company called Brinor. Wendy spoke to a lovely lady named Sue who helped tremendously and agreed to take the Bowser over to Spain.

However once the water bowser was over there we had to find a means of getting it to the sanctuary which was up in the hills. Wendy contacted the local radio station and put out a cry for help for anybody that could tow the Bowser up the hills to the sanctuary. Luckily the radio station was contacted by a lovely man called Adriaan, who arranged to meet Wendy at the port, collect the bowser and follow Wendy up to the sanctuary. Eventually after an epic journey, which invovled driving a couple of miles through a dry riverbed they found the sanctuary.

When Wendy arrived at the sactuary she was amazed at all of the animals and the fantastic volunteers. There were a group of Swedish girls who kindly help out for months at a time. They even told us that they were not bathing at the moment because they were saving all the water for the animals.

Whilst we were there delivering the bowser a water tanker turned up, which was a donation from the local radio station. However the hose from the tanker was not long enough to discharge the water into the old swimming pool where the water was to be kept until it was needed. Eventually after searching the sanctuary we were able to cobble together enough extra hose and old guttering to reach the swimming pool.

The water bowser that we donated will enable Kim and her husband Stan to fill it up in the village and then take it back to the sanctuary for all the cats and dogs. And you never know the Swedish girls may eventually even get a shower.
