A sunny Friday in early April saw us collecting at the Sainsbury's store in Edenthorpe. Staff made us feel very welcome, as did the customers, who made generous donations.

The event gave us a fantastic opportunity to both raise funds and awareness of the work we do at the RSPCA Animal Centre. We are very grateful for the support given us by Sainsbury's and look forward to visiting the store again.

We want to extend our thanks to  SPAR AUCKLEY and Tesco at Edenthorpe, who very kindly donated Easter eggs in support of our Easter Egg Puzzle Hunt. As a result of their donation, we were able to maximise our fundraising and offer families a fantastic prize to go home with.

Our thanks also go to those kind folk, who have a collection tin or RSPCA Dog at their store or business - the donations made by their customers go towards supporting the work with rescue animals. So a big thank you goes to Cookes Pet Supplies; Flowerhill (Tickhill); Go Local Extra (Imperial Crescent); Go Outdoors; HMP Hatfield; Markham Grange Nurseries; Morrisons (York Road); Tesco Edenthorpe; Unipart Rail and Walkers Nurseries.
