PDSA Shop Manager, Angela Burnett, said: “Is your wardrobe bulging with unworn clothes or your shelves full of books you never read? Why not have a clear-out this weekend and donate your unwanted items to PDSA? As well as decluttering your home, you’ll be helping raise money for vulnerable pets whose owners have nowhere else turn..

“The pandemic has had a massive impact on our fundraising activities which is why support and donations to our PDSA shops is so important. PDSA receives no government funding towards running its vital veterinary services, and is supported by the generosity of the pet-loving public who donate to make sure we can be there for a pet when they need us most.”

Located at 227 High Street, the PDSA shop raises vital funds to provide free and low cost vet care for those who struggle to pay treatment costs for their sick and injured pets..

PDSA encourages all supporters to sign up for Gift Aid if they are a UK tax payer, to help their donations go even further.

Gift Aid allows PDSA to claim an additional 25 per cent of the value of each item sold.

No pet owner should be faced with losing a beloved pet because they can no longer afford to pay for treatment. For many vulnerable pets, PDSA is there to help when there is nowhere else for their owners to turn.

The charity is continuing to follow the latest goverment guidelines to keep staff, volunteers and customers safe.
