As well as taking part in fundraising events across the organisation, BEAR will have collection boxes for donations of crucial items within its depots and offices for distribution at Scottish SPCA centres across the country, including food, bedding and toys.

Over the past two years the society has seen very high demand placed on its services with many of its rescue centres close to or at capacity at times.

Since the start of 2020, animal rescue officers and inspectors have responded to over 150,000 reports of animals in need, the equivalent of almost 220 animals helped every single day.

Natasha MacKinnon, head of fundraising, said: “The fundraising events BEAR Scotland are planning will allow us to continue carrying out our life-saving work rescuing and rehabilitating domestic, farm and wild animals across Scotland. The donation collection points will also be invaluable in helping us care for animals at our rescue and rehoming centres.

“With animals and people facing extraordinary pressures, the support of businesses like BEAR Scotland has never been so important.”

BEAR Scotland is an alliance of three organisations which are prominent in the UK roads sector – Eurovia UK, Jacobs and Breedon – joining together to provide trunk road network management and maintenance solutions to Transport Scotland.

Joanna Buggy, engagement manager said: “We polled our 1000 staff offering options of five different well-known national causes. While it was quite a tight result, the Scottish SPCA came out on top.”
