Lemar Supermarket help
Kyrenia Animal Rescue
Representatives from Lemar Supermarket Serdal Kurt (Kyrenia Area Manager), Erol Ardinc (Operations Manager) and Pelin from Karaglanoglu store met with the committee members of KAR (Margaret Ray, Ann Bosley and Diana Peek) on Friday 28th August to present 70kg of dry dog food.
Lemar officials said that they wish to help KAR in their work that they do with the street dogs and cats. A money collection box and a food collection box are in the Lemar stores at Karakum and shortly their other stores at Çatalköy, Karaoglanoglu and Alsancak will also display these collection points. Lemar at Karakum also very kindly donate their unwanted food from the butchery and deli counters in the store which is collected every two days by KAR and taken to the Rescue Centre to help with the daily feeding.
Other ways to help KAR were discussed to work alongside discounted dog and cat products. Margaret Ray thanked the Lemar officials for their help and kind thoughts on helping the animals and said it was a pleasure to be able to work with such nice people.
Unfortunately due to lack of volunteers the fortnightly Supermarket Begs outside of Lemar at Karakum and Karaoglanoglu have been suspended but it is hoped to have them up and running again soon. However the public can still place their donations of pet purchases into the food boxes inside the Lemar stores, for which KAR will be very grateful.
If there are any people who would be willing to spend a few hours to help to man the supermarket begs with other volunteers, KAR would be pleased to hear from them. Please contact the office on 0533 869 4098. For more information please visit the KAR website by clicking here
