Many thanks to Girlguiding Suffolk

Many thanks to Girlguiding Suffolk for inviting us to their Spring into Suffolk event on 22nd April at the wonderful Easton Farm Park. This was the first Girlguiding Suffolk members day for all sections and we think over 1000 Rainbows, Brownies and Guides – along with their Leaders – turned out for a glorious day of activities, music and song. We raised £180.80 towards our Project Winston building campaign.

Project Winston – start date set!

Great news! Project Winston is due to start on site on 29th May, when the contractors, RG Carter, will set up the site for the first works to begin the following week. All being well, the whole project will be completed by 12 October 2018.

We have received £316,586 in donations and legacies towards the £420,000 total, and we’re aiming to fundraise £100,000 by holding collections at our events, running a “buy a brick” style sponsorship scheme and asking our supporters to organise fundraising events on our behalf.

If you’d like more information on hosting an event for us or sponsoring the Project Winston build, please contact Kate Grimwood at kate.grimwood@rspca-ipswich.org.uk or call 01449 614057.

The more money we raise externally, the more money is left in Branch funds for the future running of the Animal Centre and Welfare Clinic.

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.

Happy Quizzers at Martlesham

Twenty one teams enjoyed our fun Quiz on Sat 7th April.  A lively and enjoyable evening and the baked potatoes seemed to go down well.

The winning team the “5o%ers” got 125 points out of a total of 138! Which is pretty impressive.

We are delighted to let you know that we raised £883 and would like to say a very BIG thank you to all who supported the event and donated raffle prizes.

We hope to have another quiz in the Autumn so keep an eye on our website and Facebook page.
