Your unwanted gifts can make a difference to poorly pets
SANTA may have finished his deliveries for another
year, but if you didn't quite get what you wished for remember that any unwanted
gifts can make a huge difference to poorly pets. Vet charity PDSA is encouraging
animal lovers in Southport to donate their unwanted Christmas gifts to help
raise cash for pets in need. PDSA's shop in Lord Street, is on the look out for
any unwanted, duplicate or unsuitable presents, such as gift sets, books, DVDs
or clothes. Toria Salisbury-Scott, PDSA Central Operations Manager, said:-
"Sharing gifts at Christmas is a real highlight of the year, but there are
always a few gifts that just don't take our fancy, from unfitting clothing to
duplicate gift sets, or items that you'll never need or use. Rather than storing
them away and feeling wracked with guilt, your unwanted gift could help save a
sick or injured pet. Why not donate them to a really worthwhile cause and help
your local PDSA."
PDSA shops raise vital funds to provide veterinary treatment to the pets of
people in need. The shops also welcome donations of good quality, 2nd hand
clothing, home ware, books, toys and DVDs.
Toria added:- "If you're having a sort out to make room for Christmas
presents please think of PDSA and donate your pre-loved items. You can bring
items to your local shop or call to arrange a collection."
