A WOMAN from Dalrymple has organised a sponsored walk to raise funds for the Scottish SPCA.

Aimee Kennedy is taking on the challenge on Ayr’s beachfront on Saturday, December 2, to raise money for the charity after seeing the news of the 105 animals seized on a raid of a puppy farm in Aberdeenshire.

She is also encouraging people to get involved by creating a Shoe Box donation for the rescued animals.

Speaking to the Chronicle, she said: “I am doing the walk to help donate to the recently rescued animals from the puppy farm and I saw that the SSPCA had been looking for people to help.

“The walk will be starting at the top of Ayr beach, down to the children’s play park and then back up to Ayr India.

“The SSPCA told me that they’ll hopefully be coming along with some of the dogs to take part in the walk which will be good.

“The shoe box idea is for people to put things like a couple of toys, blankets, tins of food, collars and so on to give the animals some comfort.”

Scottish SPCA Chief Executive, Kirsteen Campbell, added: “We are overwhelmed by the generosity and the support of the public. To organise an event is no easy task and we really appreciate the lengths Aimee has gone to, to help raise vital funds for the animals in our care.

“We don’t receive any government or lottery funding so rely entirely on donations made by the public. I wish Aimee the best of luck with her sponsored walk, and cannot thank her enough for choosing to support the Scottish SPCA.”
