Townsville RSPCA Christmas Foodbank Appeal is on again

As we edge closer to Christmas, the Townsville community is being urged to dig deep in aid of animals sheltered by the RSPCA.

The third annual RSPCA Townsville Christmas Foodbank appeal launched on 13 November 2015 and collects food for dogs and cats without a home.

This year, Loan Market Townsville City has joined forces with event organiser, TP Human Capital, with the ambition to bring the community together for a good cause. Loan Market business owner, Phil Rogers said he’s thrilled to be an official partner this year.

“We’ve supported the drive over the past two years and I’m proud to be involved this year in an even greater capacity. Our team shares a passion for animals and we’re hoping we can make a difference this Christmas - so much so that whatever the weight of food donated by the community is, we’ll go out and match it,” Phil explains.

The RSPCA appeal will run in Townsville from 13 November to 18 December and the community is encouraged to bring a donation of dog or cat food into the Loan Market or TP Human Capital offices. It will be then be doubled and delivered to the RSPCA centre.

Director or TP Human Capital, and founder of the Christmas drive, Clayton Cook said he’s hoping for the best result yet.

“With the added help of Loan Market, we’re aiming to beat our previous record of 1500 kilos. We’ve seen donations grow with each year that passes and I’m delighted to have a partner as committed as Loan Market to help us continue to bring some Christmas cheer to the RSPCA animal shelter in Townsville,” Clayton said.
