Blue Cross pet charity is appealing to the community to support their shop in Widemarsh Street, Hereford, which is delighted to have reopened with the latest easing of Government restrictions.

Blue Cross shops raise money for the thousands of unwanted, abandoned and sick pets cared for by the charity’s rehoming centres and hospitals every year.

The shop is calling out for pet lovers to consider joining the local team and for donations of good quality items.

Volunteer opportunities range from sorting and displaying stock to helping customers, serving on the till and helping out with window displays. Time commitment is flexible.

Every donation really helps us raise vital funds to help the sick, injured, abandoned and homeless pets in our care.

To make a donation contact the shop to arrange a time to drop off the items, and please wear a face covering when inside

To find out more about volunteering, visit the Blue Cross shop at 3 Widemarsh Street or call 0300 777 1640 to speak to the team or go to
