Remember the charity shop in Penwortham that received all the attention for THAT furious letter from a local resident moaning about £1.50 jeans? Well, following the devastating news of the arson attack on the Manchester Dogs Home, that infuriating charity shop, Integrate, did their part by collecting food and blankets from the locals.
We are pleased to confirm they recently handed over 20 large refuse sacks of blankets and enough food to fill a skip to the local RSPCA team, who are assisting Manchester Dogs Home alongside other dogs homes in the area. Although the initial request was for food and blankets they also managed to raise over £75, mostly from two ladies who donated their bingo winnings.
Christine Denton, manager of Integrate’s charity shops, told the blog that “After the horrendous arson attack we placed a board outside the shops to say we were collecting bedding and food for the Manchester Dogs Home. The response has been amazing we have had blankets, food, dog coats and beds. People who were passing asked if they could make cash donations and others came specifically to donate food and bedding.”
Since the arson on 11th September the Dogs Home has collected £2 million in donations with some famous names stepping up, including X Factor’s Simon Cowell and Liverpool FC striker Mario Balotelli.
