Mrs Gordon said her love of animals led her to set-up a donations box at her local grocery store 12 years ago.

‘All my life, I felt sad for the way some animals are treated by humans,’ she said. ‘I just had the idea and thought it was the right thing to do.’

Mrs Gordon, a Queens Park resident of 40 years, said the donated items go to groups such as Swan Animal Haven, Animal Protection Society and Cat Haven. She said she was looking for someone known within the various volunteer groups to collect food and toys to donate to the shelters.

Anyone interested can call Mrs Gordon on 9458 7214 or 0404 721 591.
