A warming story for a cold day – pub landlady, Kathy Bond handed over the £600 she had raised for an animal shelter in Swindon.
John Warwick, manager of the sanctuary went in person to collect the generous donation at the Moonrakers pub.
The transaction happened in the presence of two residents of the sanctuary: cat Sophie and dog WuWu.
Mr Warwick said: “It makes all the difference, especially at the moment. It’s getting harder and harder with more people coming in with unwanted pets.”
The volunteer-run sanctuary insists that 100 per cent of all donations goes to the furry residents. Mr Warwick says that if ever they need to improve anything, the volunteers work out a way of raising money between themselves. The donations will help to pay for veterinary care, food and electricity to keep the animlas warm which will be more vital than any other time in the winter months.
