A animal charity store in Montrose is urging parents who have more time on their hands now the summer holidays are over to volunteer and help raise funds for poorly pets in the area.

The PDSA store, on the High Street, is appealing for mums and dads to get in touch if they can spare a few hours or days a week to help out in the shop and look after customers.

Ramona McMahon, PDSA’s store manager in Montrose, said: “I’m sure most parents are enjoying some well deserved peace and quiet now that the new school term has started. But if you’re finding yourself at a loose end or are thinking of returning to work and want to boost your CV with some hands on experience, why not consider volunteer for PDSA?

“It would be fantastic if some local parents could give up a bit of their free time now their children are back in school, to help us run the shop and raise vital funds for pets in need of vets. Every hour of volunteering really helps us to make a difference.”

She added: “We desperately need people who are able to work mornings and afternoons Monday to Saturday.

“No previous retail experience is required as full training is provided.”
