Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

The Ruther­glen char­ity shop branch of lead­ing vet char­ity, PDSA, is ur­gently ap­peal­ing for an­i­mal lovers to do­nate their un­wanted items or time to help sick and in­jured pets.

The shop, at 50 Main Street, is des­per­ate for good qual­ity do­na­tions in­clud­ing CDs, DVDs, books and toys, as well as men’s and ladies’ clothes, shoes and ac­ces­sories.

A spokesper­son said: “As a char­ity, we rely solely on the gen­eros­ity of our supporters to do­nate qual­ity stock for us to sell, to help us raise vi­tal funds for sick and in­jured pets lo­cally and across the UK.

“So if your at­tic is strain­ing with old books, toys and clothes, why not have a clear out and let us take some of your un­wanted items off your hands?”

The Ruther­glen shop is also look­ing for vol­un­teers to of­fer their time to help look af­ter the day-to-day run­ning of the store.

The spokesper­son added: “We need en­thu­si­as­tic vol­un­teers who are pas­sion­ate about pets and who can lend a hand at Ruther­glen PDSA shop.

“No pre­vi­ous re­tail ex­pe­ri­ence is re­quired to come and work with us and for many of our vol­un­teers, they find the ex­pe­ri­ence that they pick up with us en­hances their CV and builds con­fi­dence. Vol­un­teer­ing with us also gives peo­ple a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity to meet new peo­ple and make new friends.”
