Volunteers praised for helping vets charity
Volunteers at a Rutherglen charity shop have been praised for their dedication to a vets charity.
The PDSA, who have a shop in the town’s Main Street, raise funds to provide treatment for sick and injured pets.
And now volunteers have been spoken highly of following their efforts for the organisation.
Shop manager Joyce Hanson said: “It’s an honour that our volunteers have been recognised for their hard work. We have a great team here and without them PDSA wouldn’t be able to care for all the pets that we do.”
PDSA’s volunteer development manager Kit Lendon paid tribute to the charity’s kind- hearted supporters as part of celebrations marking National Volunteers’ Week, which runs from June 1.
He said: “Our amazing volunteers raise vital funds for the charity. It all helps our vets carry out life-saving work every day, caring for thousands of sick and injured pets.
“The volunteers make a huge contribution to improving the lives of thousands of pets and their devoted owners who rely on PDSA.
“Each and every volunteer can be proud of what they help to achieve for poorly pets right across the UK.”
PDSA care for over 470,000 sick and injured pets across the UK.
The charity’s vets and nurses provide 2.7million treatments at a cost of £60million every year.
PDSA rely totally on public donations to provide their charitable service.
