may 2018 t: 01505 613340 e: Orchard Flooring Stylish, Durable: A Floor for Life When choosing a new floor for your home, there are a few things to take into consideration. For a lot of our clients, having a floor that isn’t going to be ruined by mucky feet, paw prints or spills is a top priority. For this reason, light cream carpets can be problematic for many busy households. Karndean and Amtico flooring are perfect for any room or situation in the home. They are both waterproof, slip resistant and warm underfoot, as well as being a beautiful and luxurious floor to be proud of. Both are easy to clean and without the porous qualities of wood and some stone. They bring the ageless beauty of natural flooring to your home without the hassle. Be it a rustic wood effect in the living room or a sleek and modern stone effect in the kitchen, Orchard Flooring can provide expert advice to find the perfect floor for a room. With a home sampling service why not give us a call and be on your way to a stunning floor from Orchard Flooring. You can contact Scott on 0141 334 8731 or 07563 633 432 E: website: 49 SSPCA Rehoming Week! During Rehoming Week we have opportunities to fundraise throughout most of Scotland and we would be very grateful if locals can get behind our appeal and help. Door-to-door fundraising can be carried out between Monday 7 to Friday 11 May. While people can hold street collections on their local high street on Saturday 12 May. The following council areas have seperate collection dates: • East Ayrshire Council - Door-to-door between 30 April to 4 May & street collection on Saturday 5 May • Dundee City Council - Door-to-door between 21 - 25 May & street collection on Saturday 26 May • Glasgow City Council - Door-to-door between 9 May to 12 May & street collection on 11 &12 May. You may even wish to get into the fundraising spirit and dress up as your favourite animal or bring your canine companion along! John Murasev from South Ayrshire is a regular volunteer for the Society. John says, “I enjoy raising money to help abused and injured animals in Scotland. It’s a great way to chat to people in my local area and you’ll be surprised at how generous people are!” As an animal welfare charity, we receive no government or lottery funding and rely on the generosity of the public to continue our vital work so everyone taking part will be helping save lives. Even if you can only spare an hour or two to shake a collection tin, your time and efforts will be hugely appreciated.
