Petshop visitors can help bats

Friday, March 7, 2014 - 14:36

A PET shop owner has come up with a charity scheme destined to get a wriggle-on.
Visitors to the newly opened Exotic Pets, in Fairlee Road, Newport, have the opportunity to make a donation to the Isle of Wight Bat Hospital when they go to the store. They can give a £2, 60 gramme, tub of mealworms.
"We have supplied Graham Street, of the Isle of Wight Bat Hospital, with the mealworms his bats need for a good few years now — and I had the idea our customers would like to support the charity too," said Exotic Pets proprietor Neil Reed.
"We have already had 100 tubs pledged — which means we just have another 900 to go."
