Pets Pantry is a pet food back based in Sunderland, aiming to help communities to feed their pets through difficult times. They believe no pet should go hungry. When the Lodge of Concord No 6859 in Sunderland heard of this worthy charity they decided to make a donation to assist with the ongoing financial pressures.
