SSPCA VISIT

Yesterday we had a visit from Simon who works for the SSPCA,  he helps wild animals in and around the Inverness area.He told us lots of interesting facts about his job and how he helps to rescue sick and injured wild animals. He said we could help by feeding the birds and making sure that we put all  our waste in the bin so no animals can get hurt by our rubbish! He also left us each a pencil sharpener which was very kind, thank you Simon.
