The RSPCA Halifax, Huddersfield & District branch are thanking their supporters who joined in with their ‘Valentails appeal’ this year. The local branch which is entirely self funded, recently called upon the public to choose an animal at their centre to send a ‘Valentails’ card to to put a little love in their lives!
Fay Gibbons, Events Coordinator said
“Everyone here at the centre has been truly overwhelmed by the sheer number of cards received for our Valentails appeal. Every single animal received a card and we’ve had some incredibly generous donations too, it’s been very,very heart warming. We would like to thank every individual or organisation that has donated to this appeal, without your generosity we simply couldn’t continue the work we do for so many local animals in need.”
The branch received a total of 172 Valentines cards and raised a total of £400. Local after school club ‘Harlequins’ also got involved by making their own cards and even doing a bake sale to raise funds. Calder High School and the Upperthong Brownies also made cards and kindly donated to the appeal.
The branch hopes to continue with the appeal next year due to it’s success and would like to thank everyone who supported the appeal.
