RSPCA shop to open in Boston - and you can help

Declutter your home of unwanted household items and clothes - and help animals in need in the process.

The RSPCA Lincolnshire East Branch is preparing to open a fundraising shop in Boston and is asking residents for their help stocking it.

The shop, located at 18, Market Place, is expected to open on December 13.

Branch development manager Sarah Richards said: “This new shop will enable us to increase our animal welfare programme, hopefully raise the profile of the branch and help us to rehome even more animals in our care.

“All the money raised from the shop will be ploughed straight back in to helping all the sick and injured animals currently in our care. But we do really need donations and we hope that the people of Boston and surrounding villages will respond to our plea.

Donations needed include good-quality clothing, accessories, shoes, handbags, bric-a-brac, books and media.

The new shop will be a vital source of fundraising to the branch which receives no government money and has to raise all its

own funds.

Donations can be dropped off at the shop now, between 9am and 5pm Monday to Saturday.

If you have a large volume of items to donate you can call Brian on 07786 946 875 to arrange collection.

Sarah added: “We are also keen to recruit new volunteers to work at the shop as well so please get in touch with us on 01526 834 646 if you are interested.”
