THE BLUE Cross is appealing for the community to support its shop in Barnards Green, Malvern, which is due to reopen tomorrow (Monday, April 12) when the latest easing of the Government restrictions comes into force.
The stores raise cash for the thousands of unwanted, abandoned and sick pets cared for by the charity’s rehoming centres and hospitals every year.
The shop is calling out for pet lovers to consider joining the local team and for donations of good quality items.
Volunteer opportunities range from sorting and displaying stock to helping customers, serving on the till and helping out with window displays. Time commitment is flexible.
Mark Corbett, head of fund-raising and retail at the Malvern shop, said: “lEvery donation really helps us raise vital funds to help the sick, injured, abandoned and homeless pets in our care.”
Those wanting to make a donation can contact the shop to arrange a time to drop off the items and should wear a face covering when inside.
To find out more about volunteering, visit the Blue Cross shop at 81-83 Barnards Green Road, call 0300 777 1647 to speak to the team or go to bluecross.org.uk/volunteer.
