The annual festive fundraiser promises lots of fun for all the family, whilst helping to raise vital funds for the animals in their care and the running of the centre.

Fay Gibbons, Events Coordinator, said: “Our annual Christmas Open Day is always a huge hit with our supporters and the local public. You can meet some of our animals, pop in to see Father Christmas in his grotto, enjoy our stalls and games and even grab a nice glass of mulled wine for the adults!

"It’s a great way to get in to the festive spirit, whilst also helping local animals in need and making their Christmas special too.”

The branch will have refreshments available, a raffle, a Christmas Quiz and the chance to drop gifts in to ‘Animal Stockings’ to treat the animals currently in the centres care.

So far this year, the branch has successfully found homes for 111 dogs, 281 cats and 73 small animals and they hope that with the support of the local community they can give all the animals currently waiting to be adopted the best Christmas possible.
