URGENT APPEAL – As our 20 year old Commercial Dryer sadly passes can you help us with a new machine at the GSPCA

Submitted by Steve on 15:03, 13th Sep, 2018 | 0

At the GSPCA our current Commercial Dryer has sadly, after more than 20 years passed over to laundry heaven as parts are no longer available to maintain the old girl.

For over 2 decades this work horse has tirelessly tumbled for 365 days a year drying 1000’s of dog beds, blankets, towels and sheets to enable the animals in our care to have dry and clean bedding.

We have been shopping around and to replace the machine and fitting will cost £3,500 and the GSPCA are appealing for help.
