Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Mur­ray Spooner

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.
