Stubbington Ark LogoThe RSPCA Flag Collection Days on 26th and 27th May were most successful and the sum of £685 was raised for The Stubbington Ark Animal Shelter. Thank you very much to all who showed their support and donated so generously. It is truly appreciated.

Grateful appreciation also to No 1 Shop in Mengham, to Hayling Hardware, the Co-op Supermarket in Elm Grove, Co-op Food in Selsmore Road and Lloyds Pharmacy in West Town. These businesses welcomed our volunteers to stand outside their shops with their blue collection tins.

As ever, many thanks to The News Boutique in Mengham, to Daron Ford Motors and Country Pets in Rails Lane. They very kindly permitted us to set up a stall and collection on their premises.

Our collector in West Town was most surprised when a young man from Honduras handed over a couple of heavy bags containing loose change which amounted to £27. The sight of the blue collection tin made a lovely lady dash to her car and produce all the small change she could find worth £14. An extra special thank you to both of them.

The Stubbington Ark takes in, treats, re-socialises and re-homes animals rescued by RSPCA inspectors and members of the public. The Ark is entirely self-funded and independent from RSPCA Headquarters.

Therefore, the shelter with its many residents relies solely on donations and legacies. Your support is vital and very much appreciated.

Please join us for our next coffee morning on Saturday 29th July, at the United Reformed Church in Hollow Lane from 10am to noon. Tea, coffee, bacon butties and cakes will be served; entry is free and there will be lots of table top items for sale and the customary raffle with lots of prizes.
