Cable & Wireless supports animal welfare


22-June-2009

The company recently donated a van and a mobile shelter to the Seychelles Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SSPCA), and also set up a helpline number for the public to use.

SSPCA chairman Patrick Pillay accepted the keys to the van as well as the other contributions – worth around R125,000 in total – from C&W chief executive Charles Hammond.

Mr Hammond said his company is in partnership with the community, giving support and making a positive impact where possible.

“We are helping the SSPCA, which in turn will benefit the whole community in several ways,” he said.

Mr Pillay thanked C&W for its contribution, which he said shows a clear sign of support for the work being done on animal welfare.

He said an animal welfare centre will be build at Providence to provide services including a pet shop and a modern operating theatre where vets can treat animals.

He called on others to come forward and make donations to support the work done by the SSPCA.

Mr Pillay said the shelter will be used during outdoor fundraising activities and free sterilisation of animals carried out in the districts.
 
The helpline number – 526399 – can be used by people needing help with animals and the van will be used for transporting animals.
