Guest Blog from David McCreadie, Managing Director, Tesco Bank
During April Tesco Bank is pleased to launch our campaign to support National Pet Month, which aims to showcase and celebrate the love our customers have for their pets. The campaign encourages pet owners to share their own stories using the hashtag #PetFriendsForever and is part of our sponsorship of National Pet Month, a nationwide celebration to encourage and promote responsible pet ownership.
The campaign will introduce stories from real Tesco customers about their pets, sharing how they keep their pets healthy and happy.
As part of our commitment to National Pet Month, we are also holding a series of Pet Roadshows at Tesco stores across the country. These roadshows will provide practical demonstrations led by vets on topics such as cleaning your pet’s teeth, grooming your pet and treating your pet for fleas. They will also offer a valuable opportunity to ask questions on all things pet related.
We will be at the following Tesco stores between 10am and 2pm and would encourage all customers and their four legged friends to come along.
