A veterinary practice based in West Sussex has raised more than £900 for animal welfare charities at its charity cream tea afternoon.
Organised by surgery staff members Hannah Pannell and Lizzie Walker, Northdale Vets will split the proceeds between three charities – Paws Animal Sanctuary, Caring for the Animals Trust, and local rabbit and guinea pig rescue Lumpy Lodge – all of which had stands at the popular Worthing event.
The day featured live music and face painting, as well as an array of impressive tea and cake stalls, all in aid of promoting animal welfare and rescue adoption in the local community.
Northdale practice manager Jen Pannell said: “Northdale staff find helping locally based charities very rewarding and give up their time freely to do so. “We even had special Northdale cupcakes with a picture of our head vet Peter on some of them.”
A spokesman from Lumpy Lodge said: “Northdale Vets’ fundraising will help our rescue pets immensely – in particular, with our rabbit Wilson’s ongoing repeat molar dentals for the next 12 months.
“As well as his regular in between visits to combat the problem of ongoing serious mouth infections due to malocclusion, he’s regularly on a cocktail of antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs just to keep him comfortable.”
Northdale Vets have branches at Lancing, Worthing, and Findon.
