Well….. we always knew it but now it’s official!!!! We are so thrilled to announce that our gorgeous Sophie Ashdowne has been named the Westfield Knox Local Hero of 2022!!
Sophie is a blinding light who campaigned diligently for your votes to win 20$k for Pinchapoo both in person and online reminding us all of her fearless approach to all she tackles in life. When this young lady walks into POO HQ, she brings a warmth and energy to life that’s hard to find words for. (She also brings a very decent hug or two!)
We sincerely thank you all for the out-pouring of love and support you have shown during the voting period and beyond! You are the best cheer leaders EVER!
Over a 1/3rd of Pinchapoo’s volunteer workforce are people living with various physical and intellectual disabilities. We strongly believe that everyone has the capacity to give, the right to belong and the ability to impact the world in their own unique way. Pinchapoo have committed to using some of the awarded funds to continue to educate our team and the wider industry on ways to become more inclusive and promote the incredible benefits of being a diverse workplace.
Thank you Sophie for truly embodying all we stand for at Pinchapoo.
