Ferne Animal Sanctuary is to celebrate 75 years of caring for the pets of servicemen and women with a prestigious ball in September.
The event, due to take place on September 19 at Woodlands Castle in Ruishton, Taunton, looks set to be an evening to remember.
A grand draw will take place, with a first prize of £1,000 donated by Acheson Construction. There will also be a table magician, disco and dancing to AJ’s Caravan Band, while Somerset Photographic will be on hand with their portable photography studio.
Ferne’s chairman of trustees Nanette Wale said: “The Duchess of Hamilton, a great animal lover, started the sanctuary in the dark days at the beginning of the Second World War in 1939. We’ve chosen to commemorate the work she began – and that is still carrying on 75 years later with an anniversary ball.
“This is going to be a very special evening. Ferne has an enormous amount of supporters and it will be fabulous to spend the evening celebrating with as many of them as possible.”
