COLLECTIONS outside a Blackheath supermarket raised £40 for a hardworking pet rescue.

Debbie Davies carried out collections outside Sainsbury's on Halesowen Street and raised £40.55 for Pepper's Pet Rescue.

The rescue, based on the Lodgefield estate, is run by Sophie Pepper and a small team of volunteers.

Sophie said: "Debbie also raised a lot of awareness for our charity and gave out leaflets about our charity and the work we do."
