Havering’s RSPCA branch raises hundreds of pounds with annual family fun day

A charity dedicated to helping poorly and neglected animals has raised hundreds of pounds at its annual family fun day.
Residents and animal lovers alike flocked to the RSPCA Essex, Havering and Harold Hill branch in Chippenham Road, Harold Hill, at the weekend, where they were able to have a fun afternoon, while donating money to a worthy cause.
As well as face painting and food stalls, visitors also got to meet one-year-old black and white cocker spaniel Guinness who was found collapsed in Grays last October, with a gaping open wound on his neck.
After being taken care of at the branch, he soon found his forever home and paid the team a visit at the event.
Almost £400 was raised for the charity and an extra £69 for Macmillan Cancer Support through a coffee morning, also held on the day.
Manager Maddie Collier said: “Without the support from residents, we wouldn’t be able to help the animals that are in need so we’re always very grateful to them.”
