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 is a new event, with, we hope, loads of Christmas cheer and merriment. We will have craft stalls, a raffle and tombola, RSPCA branded goods (ideal stocking fillers), games and lots more. Hot and cold refreshments will be available.
If you would like to make contact in the meantime, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We are always in need of volunteers to help us with our collections – all we ask is 2 hours of your time and calm, friendly dogs are very welcome!
We are particularly looking for collectors in the following areas: Framingham, Hadleigh, Wickham Market, and Leiston.
We know that there are a lot of animal lovers in Suffolk and we hope some of you will be able to help us raise money for animals in need through our collections.
If you would like to help us or to find out more about helping with supermarket collections, please contact:
Ian Hendry on 01449 767747 (after 6pm) or email@example.com
We are keeping strictly to Government guidelines/rules and will provide all necessary PPE.
Don’t forget to come and join us at our Christmas Fair at Stowupland Village Hall on 11 December.
As well as RSPCA stalls such as tombola and a raffle, we’ll have lovely stalls selling handmade soaps, jewellery, original photography and calendars, delicious cakes, candles and knitted Christmas items. Plus RSPCA Christmas cards and diaries, and RSPCA branded items, perfect as stocking fillers.
Entry is free and there is good parking around the hall.
This year we are holding two Christmas Fairs and we hope you can join us!
Our long-standing Holbrook Christmas Fair is due to take place on Saturday 27 November, 10am – 2pm at Holbrook Village Hall. No soup this year but in addition to hot and cold refreshments, we’ll have RSPCA branded cards and gifts, raffle, tombola, bric-a-brac and some lovely craft stalls, including handmade candles and soaps, bespoke pyrography art, and homemade baked goods.
Stowupland Village Hall on Saturday 11 December is the venue for our newest Christmas Fair. Open from 11am – 3pm, the Fair will have refreshments, cakes and pastries, handmade wreaths, doggy treats and gifts, jewellery and cards. We’ll also have a tombola and raffle.
Entry to both our fairs is free and both venues have parking.
We are excited and proud to be a part of the Stowmarket Christmas Fayre on Sunday 28th November!
This festive fun day for all the family will run from 10.30am to 5pm, and will be held in various locations across the town centre. Plus, there is no entry fee and free car parking.
There will be lots to see and do including festive market stalls and attractions. Our lovely charity shop in the Meadow Centre (opposite Costa Coffee) will be open from 10am to 3pm, and we are looking forward to having a fundraising stall with lots of goodies at the mini Christmas Charity Fair being held at Red Gables Wellbeing Hub in Ipswich Road.
Other attractions to enjoy will be:
- An ice rink, merry-go-round and miniature model fairground;
- Street entertainment – stilt walkers, carol singers and brass band;
- Father Christmas will be stopping off at the Museum of East Anglian Life;
- Festive Storytelling at the John Peel Centre;
- The Regal Cinema will be showing classic Christmas films;
- Over 360 Christmas trees to see at St. Peter and St. Mary’s Church;
- Craft Market at The Mix;
- Mini Charity Christmas Fair at Red Gables Wellbeing Hub;
- Christmas Crafts for children at Stowmarket Library; and
- Winter art trail through the town.
Press ups, push ups whatever you call them, they are hard work! Which is why we are excited to tell you about one of our branch supporters, Tim Moll who will be doing 3000, yes that’s 3000, press ups in aid of our Branch of the RSPCA during November.
We hope you will be able to join in and support Tim’s great fundraising effort and help raise much needed money for animals in need in Suffolk.
Every donation is valued, and Facebook pays all the processing fees, so 100% of your donation will come directly to us and the animals we look after.
Maybe this has inspired you to do a fundraising event for us in 2022?!
We are sorry to inform you that our Quiz Night planned for Saturday 23rd October has been cancelled.
While we are still as dedicated as ever to raising funds to help animals in need in Suffolk, the safety of our attendees has to come first and we don’t yet feel we are at a point where it would be sensible to hold an indoor quiz.
Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused and we look forward to seeing you at our Quiz Nights in 2022.
As we have had to cancel this event, if you would like to donate the cost of a quiz ticket (£8) to help our vital work it would be much appreciated. To donate click here.

One of our wonderful young supporters Chloe Haynes had just undertaken a super challenge in aid of our branch of the RSPCA and animals in need.
Chloe, aged 12, biked 25 miles in just under 3 hours; which we think is pretty amazing. Chloe loves cycling and wanted to help animals at the same time.
She has already smashed her £150 donation target by raising £330 but we would like to help Chloe raise even more, to say thank you to her for taking on this challenge to help local animals.
A big thank you to Chloe and well done!

Sadly, we’ve decided to cancel our Open Day & Fun Dog show, due to take place at our Martlesham Animal Centre on 5 Sept.
Although the restrictions are being lifted, Covid-19 is still a very real and potent danger, and we did not want to take the risk of bringing Covid into the Animal Centre after all the hard work that’s gone into keeping it out.
It will mean another financial loss, as the Open Day is one of the most popular events in our calendar, but we felt the risk was just too great.
If you could make a donation to help our animals through this difficult year, we would be incredibly grateful. Our Virgin Money Giving Page is here.
