Many thanks to the organisers of the Martlesham Heath 100 event on 8th/9th July. It was a brilliant two days, and we raised over £200, plus an additional £147 from our friends at Happi Days. They kindly donated the proceeds from their agility course to us.
We also had a great time at both the Blue Cross Fun Day on 29th July and the Suffolk Dog Day on 30th July where we raised £129 and £114 respectively with our Fundraising Stall to help local animals in need.
2017 is going to be a big year for the Suffolk East and Ipswich Branch of the RSPCA. We’ll be celebrating our 85-year anniversary, having had our first ever meeting on 24 May 1932. Created to help animals in need in our local area, we now rehome and rehabilitate over 460 animals per year, as well as providing services such as veterinary care, neutering, microchipping and advice. We never put a healthy animal to sleep.
2017 will also see the Martlesham Animal Centre celebrate its 40th birthday, having opened in Mill Lane in September 1977. We’re hoping to replace one of our kennel blocks and our dog isolation unit, which are too cramped for larger dogs, with new, up-to-date facilities.
But the Centre is a youngster compared to our Clinic, which has been 55 years at its current site in St Georges Street, Ipswich. It opened in October 1962, having been bought for the princely sum of £1600 (old money) with a building fund raising £151.14s6d “for alteration and decoration”.
