SPAR Ballindean Road Dundee, owned and operated by CJ Lang and Son Limited has recently donated a generous £500 to their local charity – Help for Abandon Animals.

The money was raised through the sales of single use carrier bags, which is costing shoppers 5p per bag.

Help for Abandoned Animals is a small, local, non-profitmaking voluntary Scottish Registered Charity.  It has been ongoing now for over thirty years and is run by unpaid volunteers.  Help for Abandon Animals works closely with Brown Street Kennels and help pay any necessary vet bills i.e. neutering and inoculations, to make the dog more home able, as well as for any medical conditions. They also help with fostering and private kennelling if a dog is not doing well in the kennel environment. Their volunteers work hard to raise money by holding bookstalls, stalls at Gala Days, collecting cans, and well as trolleys in supermarkets and other shops for donations of pet food and treats.

Sandra Boyle, Secretary/Treasurer, of Help for Abandoned Animals said: “I was delighted to be presented by a cheque for £500 from Spar at their store in Ballindean Road.  This very generous donation will go a long way in helping the many needy stray, abandoned animals in the area, which will include veterinary bills, food and other items. The animals will include dogs in Brown Street Kennels, Cat Rescue groups, hedgehog rescue groups and any other deserving group”.

Tracey Munro Store Manager for SPAR Ballindean, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be able to donate money to such a fantastic cause”
