THERE will be fun all around when an animal centre holds two events to raise money for the medical costs of pets in their care.

On Saturday, September 6, the Friends of RSPCA Southridge animal centre will host a sponsored dog walk followed by a 1940s themed fancy dress night.

Animals, like the two pictured who have been abused, abandoned and neglected, will benefit from every penny raised.

During the walk, owners can walk their pets on either one of two circuits: an adventurous country route and a slightly shorter one.

There will be a competition along the way, with prizes for the winners.

All dogs taking part will be awarded a Step for Animal Welfare rosette.

After the walk, which starts at 11am, you can sit and enjoy a snack at a barbecue.

Later in the evening the 40s night, in the marquee of the grounds of the Packhorse Lane centre, South Mimms, promises to be a night to remember.

There are prizes for the best male and female costume of the era and dancing to a live band recreating the Glenn Miller sound.

Tickets costs £10 for this and the fun starts at 7pm.

Mona Jorgensen, deputy manager at RSPCA Southridge, said: "For years the Friends have been helping the centre in the care of elderly and terminally ill animals that find themselves homeless.

"All profits will provide for the animals that would otherwise not have a chance."

Forms for the sponsored walk and tickets for the 40s night are available from RSPCA Southridge on 0208 906 0811 or email friendsofsouthridge@yahoo.co.uk
