Romford crime author backs animal charity

Gritty Romford crime writer Kimberley Chambers is urging people to support the ‘fantastic’ work of a hard-working animal charity.

Kimberley has agreed to highlight the work of the Wanderers Haven Animal Sanctuary and dropped by its base in Cranham to see the essential work that goes on helping homeless and ill-treated animals.

The Feud author, who is about to publish her latest book, said: “It’s fantastic down there. I absolutely loved it, they are such nice people and the animals are really well treated.”

For around 50 years the charity has been rescuing all sorts of animals from dogs and cats to horses, goats, rabbits and guinea pigs and finding them more loving places to stay.

But its volunteers are always up against it and are always on the look out for donations of food, bedding and people who can spare some time to help out.

Kimberley said: “There are so many generous people around and they’re thrilled with the support they get but always need more.

“They need hay in particular, because it’s quite expensive, or people to sponsor them, or who walk the dogs, which I will be going back to do.”
