Important shop information
14 September 2020
The PACT shops will all be closed until at least the first week in October. This depends of course on the new spikes of Covid that are continually being threatened, and is dependent on people being sensible.
After paying rent, wages and utilities we need 25% of the takings to run the sanctuary, at present it would appear that those charity shops that are currently open are not taking more that 75%.
We are very grateful that at present our landlords are being very generous and only charging half rent for the next few months, while we are shut, but as soon as we open they will rightly expect a full rent. The answer to the question is it will cost too much of our dwindling funds to open.
We cannot visit all shops every day, the bags are attacked by vandals, and the shop door becomes a fly tip. It is illegal to fly tip so PLEASE don’t do it. Either keep your goodies until we open, bring them to the sanctuary or if we can arrange a collection we will, but we are very busy collecting animals that need us and they must come first.
