Fabulous final figure for feel-good Family Fun Day

Well the results are in and what a fabulous day we all had at our Family Fun Day. The sun shone, the crowds flocked and the total was awesome. We took £3638.50 on the day – an amazing 20% increase on last year’s total. Many thanks to everyone who came.

Congratulations to Zoe and the team for all their hard work, and a huge thank you to all our volunteers who assisted on the day. We certainly couldn’t do it without you.

Keep an eye out for more info on our next on-site event, our Open Day and Fun Dog Show on 2nd September.

Project Winston begins!

After years in the planning, Project Winston has started on site. The first works began on 29th May, after a quick photoshoot with staff, Trustees and volunteers from the Animal Centre and staff from the contractors, RG Carter. Jean Short (our Hon Chairman) and Paul Segger (General Works Manager, RG Carter) were wielding the spades, but Blue, a beautiful lurcher who is looking for his forever home, stole the show.

If you’d like more information on hosting a money-raising event or sponsoring the Project Winston build, please take a look at the Project Winston section here on our website or contact Kate Grimwood at kate.grimwood@rspca-ipswich.org.uk / 01449 614057.

Free animal welfare talks

If your group or organisation is looking for an interesting animal welfare talk, then look no further. Gill is our lovely volunteer speaker who can give an engaging talk on animal welfare and the work the Branch does for animals in our local area. The talk can be tailored to adult or child groups, on a class basis that is age appropriate or a full school assembly. The talks are free of charge, but of course we are always open to donations or monies raised via fundraising.

If you would like to book a talk, please email Gill at: education@rspca-ipswich.org.uk or call 01473 623280.

Dog Fosterers needed

We are introducing an exciting and rewarding scheme at the RSPCA Martlesham Centre; we need fosterers to help some of the dogs in our care. We are looking for understanding people who can provide a safe home and positive socialising and training. Check out more details in our Pets section of the website.
