Raising Money for Local Animals in Need
Fundraising events are a vital part of our efforts to raise the £1,000 per day it takes to pay for our work with local animals in need. If you would like to help with fundraising in any way, from donating a raffle or tombola prize or helping run a stall at an event, to organising an event or joining the fundraising committee, please contact Kate on 01449 614057 or email@example.com
This fun and popular event is back!
Dog Show registration from 12 noon with judging from 1pm.
More information and Dog Show Classes to follow in due course……
We hope you can join us.
Year 7 students at Gorseland Primary School have been working hard to transform our very old, tired collection dogs into fun, colourful pieces! The students have done incredibly well, and their imagination and artistic talents can be seen in the main reception area of our animal rehoming centre in Martlesham.
The collection dogs we have around our centre help us to raise funds for our Branch so we can continue to help animals in need. Gorseland Primary School has supported this project and the students have put their all into creating the perfect attraction to help raise funds for animal in Ipswich and the surrounding area.
If you work with children and would like to get involved in similar projects, please contact our centre manager Zoe Barrett at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.

We are delighted to let you know that Play2Day in Martlesham held a lovely Christmas Market on Wednesday, November 28th, we joined in and raised £64 which will all go towards our Animal Centre and Clinic.
We had a great time at our Branch Quiz in Martlesham on 10th November.
83 players (17 teams) took part and the winning team “I Said That” scored an amazing 111 out of 130 – well done to them.
The baked potato supper went down well on a chilly wet evening and, most importantly of all, we raised £761 for the Branch.
Thank you to everyone who came along and helped make the event a success.
Keep an eye out for our Quiz dates for next year!
Our Autumn Fair at Holbrook on 3rd November was a great success. We had some lovely stalls, from jams to Christmas goodies, and made a brilliant £1,272! Thank you to everyone who helped and who came and supported the event.

We have had to take the difficult decision to cancel our Open Day & Fun Dog show, due to take place this Sunday (23rd Sept)
We were hoping the weather forecast would improve, but with high winds and heavy rain predicted, it would be too unsafe to go ahead.
It’s a huge disappointment, as we were hoping to raise a lot of money for our Animal Centre and to show off the new Project Winston paw plaques. However, we hope to see you all at our Autumn Fair / Shop Early for Christmas event on Saturday 3rd November at Holbrook Village Hall. Keep an eye on this website and our Facebook page for further information.
