Join in and celebrate a momentous day for animal welfare

woodside animal rescueWoodside Animal Centre in Leicester will be holding their annual fun-filled Gala Day on Sunday 21 September which promises to be the biggest and best yet.

This year’s Gala Day, named Care4Paws, will celebrate Woodside’s 40 year contribution to animal welfare in Leicestershire.

The event will take place throughout the day, carrying on into the night and will see the charity make a huge announcement that will dramatically change animal welfare in Leicestershire.

The Care4Paws event promises to be a whole day of fun for all the family.

During the daytime there will be a selection of traditional stalls, the all new craft corner and a traditional dog show. Refreshments will also be available including a barbeque and pop up tea room.

New for this year, Woodside will carry on the celebrations into the evening with Care4Paws Sunday Sessions.

There will be live music from local bands, an exciting charity raffle, heaps of food and drink, plus the chance to have a hair makeover by the Barrie Stephen pop up hair salon.

There is definitely something for all ages at Woodside’s Gala Day this year.

Woodside’s Branch and Charity Development Manager Gary, said:

“This year our Gala Day is bigger than ever, and I am so excited to tell everyone our plans to completely change animal welfare in Leicestershire. If you are an animal lover you won’t want to miss out on this special day.

“Our Gala Day is a fantastic opportunity for every member of the family to get involved in some fun, games and entertainment, which of course is all for a great cause.”

The centre, which takes in thousands of animals every year, is affiliated to the RSPCA but receives no money from the national society or government, and depends entirely on donations and fundraising events for its survival.
