It really has been a season of love and kindness, as local children have gone over and above in their fundraising efforts.

Whether it has been a sponsored silence, a shoe box collection, a bake sale or wearing Christmas jumpers we have been touched by the efforts children have gone to, to raise money for the rescue animals at the RSPCA South Yorkshire Animal Centre.

One thing is for sure, all the animals will have a very happy Christmas playing with their new toys and nibbling on their treats.

Thank you everyone for your generosity and care.
