North Somerset's RSPCA branch held an open day which saw more than 800 people learn about its work with animals while raising hundreds of pounds.

A bouncy castle, face-painting, food, and agility displays were all on offer and RSPCA inspector Jo Daniel was also on hand to talk to adults and children about her role.

Animal centre manager Nikki Tutton said: “The weather was perfect and local farmer Chris Raffill allowed us to park more than 200 cars on his family’s land around the centre, which enabled the event to take place.”

The total amount raised at the event is still being counted, but it is thought to be in excess of £3,000.

Branch secretary Rita Hinton said local support is ‘essential’ for the charity.

She added: “It is from donations, legacies and the profits from our 10 branch charity shops and their teams of staff and volunteers which enable us to continue doing the work we do.”
