Bluecoat support the Blue Cross

Bluecoat support the Blue Cross!
During the last two weeks of the autumn term, the children of Bluecoat C of E Primary School kindly brought in donations for the animals at the Tiverton Blue Cross re-homing centre who were going to be homeless over the festive period. The donations were overwhelming and included a range of dog and cat treats and also high value items like peanut butter and hot dog sausages that the staff use for training purposes. As well as treats, there was an abundance of food and one kind parent even trooped around to the supermarkets asking for donations. The Blue Cross also now have three lovely dog beds thanks to the generosity of our families.
In addition to the offerings from Bluecoat, there were also generous contributions from a Year 1 class in Combe Martin School, from Hartland school, some kind staff members from St. Mary’s in Bideford and The Beaver Inn in Appledore, as well as Tescos in Bideford and Barnstaple, Morrisons in Bideford and Creature Comforts. 
 Bluecoat Teacher Jasmine Ayres, a keen supporter of the charity, delivered the items to the Blue Cross over the Christmas period where she met Bennie the 10 year old labrador cross, whose photo had been used as publicity for the donation drive. He was so excited to see (and smell) all the treats, that he barked with excitement. The Blue Cross do an amazing job saving animals who have been abandoned, abused or handed in through no fault of their own. Being a charity, they depend on donations and other resources to keep doing the great work they need to do.
If anyone feels they would like to support The Blue Cross in the same way that the children of Torrington did, they can visit their website where there is a link to their Amazon wishlist The Blue Cross re-home dogs and cats as well as other small animals such as rats, guinea pigs and degus.
Heartfelt thanks to everyone who donated. Each and every item will make a difference.
