Animal-lovers in Norwich can be a 'superhero' for poorly pets by donating clothes, accessories, furniture and other goods as part of a charity's new campaign.

The PSDA (People's Dispensary for Sick Animals) has made a plea for donations of good-quality unwanted items which can be sold to raise money for sick and injured pets.

Dawn Cowie, shop manager of the PSDA branch in Queens Road, Norwich, said: 'We're launching an appeal to encourage local people to become our superheroes by donating their unwanted items and make a huge difference for poorly pets.

'We are always on the hunt for items that can help us raise money for sick and injured pets across the UK and what better time for people to make a donation than when they are having a spring clear-out.

'This is the time of year that people want a fresh start ready for the summer months, so if you are planning to de-clutter we want you to think of PDSA.'
