New Collection Point For Gloucestershire Animal Charity This Festive Period
10 Dec 2019

Linden Homes has set up a new collection point at its Barleyfields development in Ashchurch to help collect food and bedding donations for Gloucestershire Animal Welfare Association and Cheltenham Animal Shelter, a local charity that rescues and rehomes unwanted and abandoned animals.

The housebuilder has pledged its support this season to help animals in need and is appealing to local schools, businesses and residents to get involved in its work during Christmas and the new year.

The following items can be donated to the sales and marketing suite at Barleyfields until Friday 10th January, ahead of the team hand-delivering the gifts to the charity in the new year:

  • Fleece blankets
  • Toys
  • Treats for cats, dogs and small animals
  • Food: dried or tinned
  • Collars or leads for the dogs

The charity also has a wish list:

Sue Scholfield, sales and marketing director for Linden Homes, commented: “We are collecting donations for a number of local animal charities close to our developments. Christmas is a magical time of year but we’re aware some animals do not have homes and we wanted to help the fantastic charities that do so much for them.

“There is often a drive to help charities during Christmas and so we wanted to offer some additional support afterwards as well. We also thought people may have some spare items to donate after Christmas and the time to do so. We would like to invite local schools, residents and businesses to work with us on this project.”
