Generous folk answer appeal

GENEROUS Morpeth residents have answered a Northumberland pet charity’s desperate calls for help.

The People’s Animal Welfare Service (PAWS), based in Bedlington, offers a weekly clinic for people on low incomes to access veterinary help for their pets.

But with drug costs rising and supporters unable to do as much fund-raising as they would like due to age or infirmity, the charity is fast running out of funds to cover its costs and there is only enough in the coffers to last another six months.

Eager to help out, Morpeth resident Linda Wylie organised a house-to-house collection in Middle Greens and collected £83.84 for PAWS.

The charity has thanked her for her efforts, but still needs more support.

Anyone who can spare time as a volunteer or offer financial help is asked to call 01670 828756, or visit PAWS-Bedlington on Facebook.
