Picture Perfect Pets

Vizsla pup August

A gorgeous Vizsla pup from Perth has taken top prize in Perth St Johns Rotary Club's "Perfect Pets" competition, winning a £200 prize for owner Heather Stewart.

Stunning August won the judges' hearts in the Beautiful Baby class before going on to lift the overall title in our fundraising virtual pet show. Other accolades went to submissions from Dundee, Wigan, Stirling, Aberdeenshire and Lasswade.

We're extremely grateful to those who took the time to join in the fun and to donate to our two chosen animal charities - People's Dispensary for Sick Animals (PDSA) and Send A Cow. We also thank the many local businesses who sponsored the event and the judges who were faced with the difficult task of selecting winners.

Hoodies for The Lighthouse

We were delighted to support The Lighthouse for Perth by buying new hoodies for the staff and volunteers.

Lighthouse staff and volunteers wearing the new hoodies

The Lighthouse for Perth offer support to anyone aged 12 or over who is struggling with their mental health or emotions. This includes people who are having thoughts of self-harm or suicide. As well as a listening service, they provide a safe space for people who are at crisis point.

The service they offer is invaluable, and the staff are amazing! The hoodies are needed so that staff and volunteers are readily identifiable.
