“We recently held another ‘Bring a Pet To Work’ day, which was great fun.

“Now we are collecting on behalf of Bleakholt at both of our Bury and Bolton town centre offices.

“If you can spare anything such as a lead, or a little extra animal food, toys or equipment we will make sure it is safely delivered to Bleakholt.”
