Please pop into our new pop-up shop

Harefield Gazette - - ANIMAL NEWS -

AND so it be­gins! The count­down proper has be­gun. John Lewis, M&S, Waitrose and the other big hit­ters have un­veiled their Christ­mas ad­verts, and, you may have no­ticed that DFS and the other fur­ni­ture shops have sales on.

If you are plan­ning to take up their of­fer of a new din­ing table to make room for granny or a big­ger sofa on which to en­joy the sea­sonal TV shows you will prob­a­bly need to get rid of the old one first. That’s where we come in.

We will soon be open­ing our new ‘pop-up’ shop in the old Quil­ters store in Ruis­lip and iron­i­cally, we will be sell­ing lots of fur­ni­ture.

We have a great team who will come and col­lect your old fur­ni­ture so that we can give it a new life else­where, just give them a call on 07531 446830 to ar­range date and time.

Why are we call­ing it a pop-up shop? We will have use of the site for at least six months, but no more than a year, while the new own­ers carry out their plans for the build­ing.

To make our pop-up shop the best it can be we are look­ing for some more fan­tas­tic vol­un­teers to help with pre­par­ing stock for sale, as­sist­ing cus­tomers, man­ning the till and loads of other jobs too. Train­ing will be given so if you haven’t tried vol­un­teer­ing be­fore why not give it a go? The hours are flex­i­ble so if you are job hunt­ing or have other com­mit­ments we will do what we can to ac­com­mo­date you.

Vol­un­teer­ing is great fun, helps to build con­fi­dence and looks good on your CV or univer­sity ap­pli­ca­tion. If you would like to join the team please call Perry on 07801 217196.

Each year we have to raise more and more money to care for our an­i­mals. This year we will spend £214,000 on di­rect care on top of which, we need to fund salaries and other costs, such as ve­hi­cles. With­out the in­come gen­er­ated by our shops we would have to se­ri­ously re­duce the amount of work we do and the num­ber of sick, in­jured and ne­glected an­i­mals in our care. So we have to make the best of ev­ery op­por­tu­nity that comes our way so please come and sup­port our pop-up.

Aban­doned This lit­tle lady (pic­tured right) and her sib­lings were aban­doned by her own­ers when they moved away for­tu­nately we got to them in time. They are do­ing re­ally well and will be ready for adop­tion soon.

Adop­tion charges There is a fee of £70 for a cat, £80 for a kit­ten (six months and un­der), £20 for guinea pigs and £10 rats, ham­sters, ger­bils, etc.
