Pet store helps raise £50,000

Ormskirk Advertiser - - Martin Mere -

STAFF at Pets at Home in Burscough helped raise £50,000 to help an­i­mals in need this win­ter.

For 10 days, they worked to raise money for an­i­mal res­cues in and around Burscough by invit­ing cus­tomers to pur­chase a Peel & Reveal ticket for £1, as well as host­ing vol­un­teer col­lec­tions and fundrais­ing, with all pro­ceeds go­ing to char­ity.

The ini­tia­tive, which was run by the RSPCA and raised £50,000 in Eng­land and Wales, will help the RSPCA con­tinue to res­cue, re­ha­bil­i­tate and re­home an­i­mals in des­per­ate need of care.

Sarah Yould, store man­ager at Pets at Home Burscough, said: “What a fan­tas­tic re­sult.

“We had so much fun rais­ing money and are so grate­ful to all our gen­er­ous cus­tomers for tak­ing part and do­nat­ing much needed funds.

“It’s great to know that this money will go to­wards sup­port­ing fan­tas­tic res­cue cen­tres who work to help an­i­mals who have suf­fered from ne­glect and cru­elty.”

Sarah Col­berg, se­nior cor­po­rate part­ner­ships man­ager from the RSPCA, said: “We are de­lighted to once again be sup­ported by Pets at Home col­leagues and cus­tomers who have all helped raise vi­tal funds to sup­port the RSPCA’s work to pro­mote kind­ness and pre­vent cru­elty to an­i­mals.”
