SICK and poorly animals in York need your donations.

Staff and volunteers at York PDSA shop are urging animal lovers to have a clear-out and to donate any unwanted items to help sick and injured pets in the local area.

Items needed include (CDs, DVDs, books and toys), as well as (men’s and ladies clothes, children’s clothes, shoes and accessories). Donations can be taken to the shop from Monday to Saturday between 9am and 5pm and 10am till 4pm on a Sunday.

PDSA Shop Manager, Rachel, said: “Is your wardrobe bulging with unworn clothes or your shelves full of books you never read? Why not have a clear-out this weekend and donate your unwanted items to PDSA? As well as de-cluttering your home, you’ll be helping raise money for the pets of local people in need.

“We’re appealing for all types of items, especially Ladies clothing and shoes and handbags and men’s clothing. We also need home furnishings such as (vases and ornaments), as well as good quality men’s, ladies and children’s clothes. And any linen and children’s clothing, all funds raised will help local sick and injured pets.”
