GENEROUS Shirley shoppers handed over vital donations to the RSPCA recently.
During Farm Animal Week, the charity held collections at Sainsbury’s Local stores, including the branch in Shirley.
Sainsbury’s also donated 5p to the charity for every Freedom Food product bought by customers.
Farm Animal Week is held to highlight the fact that most animals reared in the UK for food every year do not meet standards which the Freedom Food organisation and the RSPCA find acceptable
RSPCA community fund-raiser, Helen Tuite, said: “We are delighted to have not only raised such a great amount but also helped raise awareness for Freedom Foods.”
Anyone who can hold a collection or organise events for the RSPCA locally is asked to contact Helen on either 07715 540518 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
