Charity store will use unwanted gifts to raise cash for poorly pets
An animal charity has launched an appeal for unwanted Christmas gifts to be donated to a local store.
The PDSA charity store in High Road, Leyton is urging residents to donate unwanted gifts to help it raise money for poorly pets.
The charity store raises funds to provide PDSA-funded veterinary treatment to pets in the area.
Leyton PDSA Manager, Susan White said: "Christmas is a magical time of year but there are always a few gifts that don’t quite take our fancy, from ill-fitting jumpers to the unwanted book or the DVD you already own.
"But as the saying goes - one man’s junk is another man’s treasure. Your unwanted presents will suit someone else and by donating to PDSA, you will help raise vital funds for sick and injured pets in your local area."
Gifts can be dropped at the store Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm, or you can call 0208 539 7564 to arrange a collection.
