Selfless volunteers have been honoured for half a century of helping poorly pets in Gloucester.

Joyce Hartland, Gwen McKenzie, Hazel Dale, Beryl Summers and Olive Smith have each spent the last 10 years giving up their time to help with fundraising at The People's Dispensary for Sick Animals (PDSA) in the Oxbode.

The fab five were presented with long service certificates and badges by the charity’s area manager Paul Gibbs at a special ceremony to mark the milestone.

He said: “It is always a privilege dealing with our dedicated volunteers and I am thrilled to be presenting not one but five length of service awards in one store.”

Store manager Sue Cresswell added: “These five women are an absolute inspiration.

“They help to make a huge difference to the lives of sick and injured pets.”

The PDSA provides free veterinary treatment to the sick and injured pets of people in need. To find out more go to www.pdsa.org.uk
