Scilly’s Vet Support Group Receives Community Funding

vet support group bannerThe Vet Support Group is being given £500 by the Council.

Last year members felt that they couldn’t commit to the cash on an annual basis, before the elections, but as the new members are in place the grant was approved.

They’ll receive £500 each year for the next four years from the Authority’s Community Fund.

Pam Manning says the group aims to improve veterinary facilities in Scilly.

Most supporters are locals who pay an annual £10 membership fee but they also have a handful of larger, corporate donors. The Council is now one of them.

Pam says she realises that economic conditions are tough but the group are still looking for more businesses to help them out.

The driveway to the surgery is in a poor state and the money will go towards re-surfacing that, says Pam.
