A SOMERSET village is holding a charity night to help raise money for abandoned animals.
Two Somerset women are holding a fundraising evening with live music, a raffle and an auction at Shipham Village Hall in New Road, Shipham.
Heather Kerr-Wilbur and Zena Simmons of Langford Productions set up the charity night last year after they realised how many animals were suffering due to the recession.
Ms Kerr-Wilbur said: “When money is tight and circumstances change some dogs find they are one too many mouths to feed and as a consequence the animal sanctuaries in the area are full to bursting point.”
The pair have already raised £2,500 this year for Hollyhedge Animal Sanctuary, SOS Sri Lank and Prickles Hedgehog Rescue, Cheddar.
The evening is at the hall on November 4 and includes live band The Treasury. Fish and chips are available in the interval and people are invited to bring their own drinks.
Tickets, priced £5, are available by calling Ms Kerr-Wilbur on 01934 852822 or by emailing email@example.com.
