I am writing to you from Hopefield Animal Sanctuary in Brentwood, Essex.
I thought this may be of interest to those of you who are local to us.
We are a non-profit charity raising funds to rescue neglected, abused and abandoned animals, something which we have been doing for 30 years now. We currently have 300 animals on our site in Brentwood and the only way we continue to look after these animals and rescue new ones is due to donations from the public.
And this year to try and raise funds for the winter we are holding a Christmas Fun Day on Sunday 2nd December between 11am-4pm. We are lucky enough to have Leona Lewis (our patron) singing alongside Matt Cardle at the event as well as a Santa's Grotto, craft stalls, children's entertainment, a look around all the animals and much more!
Entrance and tickets are only £5 an adult and £3 a child with all the money raised going straight to the animals!
There is free parking for the event and all friendly dogs on leads are welcome! There will also be stalls selling food and refreshments as well as some Christmas baked goodies!
Hopefield is at the bottom of Sawyers Hall Lane, Brentwood, Essex, CM15 9BZ.
We hope you consider coming as it is a perfect family day out, with something a little bit different.
