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, Community Fundraiser, said: “Our annual Christmas Open Day is one of our favourite events.

"There’s so much to enjoy, including can meeting some of the animals in our care, lots of festive stalls, games and even 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 donate gifts in to ‘Animal Stockings’, to help make Christmas a little bit brighter for those who will be spending it at the shelter, whilst waiting to find their forever homes.

So far this year, the branch has successfully found homes for 139 dogs, 245 cats and 91 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.
