The Retford branch of Coop Funeralcare, has just set up as a collection point for items to be donated to the Mayflower Animal Sanctuary in Bawtry. The charity takes in homeless dogs and cats and tries to re-home them. Funeral Arranger Tony Kirkham said: “Coop Funeralcare is committed to helping local charities in the area that it covers, and as an owner of three dogs and one cat who were formerly at Mayflower, this cause is very dear to my heart personally.”
Some of the items which Mayflower would like are: dog and cat beds, towels, leads, strong black plastic bags, handwash, washing powder. A full list is available from either Mayflower on 01302 711330 or Coop Funeralcare in Retford on 01777 708870.
