Church Minshull Youth Clubbers visited the RSPCA wildlife rescue centre at Stapeley Grange in mid-September to learn and understand more about their work. It is the busiest wildlife rescue centre in the county with approx 6000 admissions a year. The majority of animals taken in at the centre are orphans who have lost their parents through accidents, predators or human neglect.
The group observed the feeding of some orphaned pigeons and baby hedgehogs, who stole the show. They also witnessed the release back into the wild of a bat, which was in taken in by the centre in May with a damaged wing.
The RSPCA are currently on a £50,000 fundraising campaign for Stapeley, to celebrate their work there.
On 2nd October, the Youth Club, sponsored a 'Pampered and Talented pets' event, to raise funds for the RSPCA at Stapeley Grange. They had 6 doggies, a guinea pig and a selection of cuddly toy animals.
All were well behaved and their owners showed some great talented pets; staying, sitting, lying, giving high 5's and doing the agility course, ''lots of budding Ashley and Pudseys...!
They raised a fantastic £100 for the RSPCA...!!
