One Fun Day is back 'in real life’ this year and we're getting ready to welcome supporters to a day of animal-themed fun wherever they live.

More than 40 events will be happening simultaneously to support the RSPCA’s network of branches, animal centres and all of the animals in their care.

Halifax's fun day will feature events at the centre on Wade Street on June 18.

Events manager Jo Hockley said: “We held a pilot One Fun Day back in 2019 and it proved to be a massive success - so we were keen to make it an annual event in the RSPCA calendar. But then with the pandemic, everything was turned upside down and live events were put on hold - until now!

“We did hold virtual events in 2020 and 2021 - which were really well supported but we are delighted that this year we can hold it ‘In Real Life’!

“No two One Fun Day events are ever the same, which is why we have now launched our interactive map so you can find out exactly what fun things will be taking place in your area.

“Our branches and centres have pulled out the stops this year and we are delighted that more than 40 will be hosting One Fun Day events. They will include everything from charity shop parties to dog shows and family fun days.

“There will be stalls, food and drink, face painting, crafts and entertainment - plus at many events and the chance to be crowned winner of our nationwide PonyCycle championship.

“All our One Fun Day events are designed for us to celebrate being One RSPCA - bringing together our amazing family of branches, centres, shops and others - and raise valuable funds to directly help animals in your local area.

“We hope supporters can find time to come along and support us on the day - or better still how about volunteering? You can find everything you need on our interactive map - which includes links to full details of the events.

“We hope to see you then!”.
