MARGARET Green Animal Rescue’s family fun day takes place at the charity’s Church Knowle centre next month.

The event, costing just £1 donation for adults, boasts a host of activities, including a ‘make a toy for a rescue cat’ workshop, the chance to handle small animals, face painting and getting up close and personal with bats.

Church Knowle centre manager Claire Ross said: “We are very excited about our Animal Family Fun Day and hope to see lots of visitors. We would love to help children and adults learn more about animals in their care so please come down and see us.”

Church Knowle Animal Sanctuary and Visitor Centre has many animals including horses, donkeys, goats, sheep, pigs, chickens and rabbits.

Entry for children on the fun day, set for April 9, between 10.30am and 2.30pm, is free.
