STAFF and volunteers at Chester-le-Street PDSA shop are urging local people to have a clear out and donate any unwanted items to help sick and injured pets in the area.

The shop urgently needs items including CDs, DVDs, books and toys, as well as home furnishings such as vases, pictures and ornaments. Donations can be taken to the shop from Monday to Saturday, between 9am and 5pm.

Shop manager Adele said: “Why not have a clear out this weekend and donate your unwanted items to PDSA? We’re appealing for all sorts of items to sell in shop, including unwanted CDs, unused toiletries and second-hand books. As well as de-cluttering your home, you’ll be helping a very worthy cause at the same time. All money raised from the sale of these items will help the sick and injured pets of people in need.”

Located at Front Street, Chester-Le-Street PDSA shop raises funds to provide PDSA-funded veterinary treatment in the local area.
