Animals help raise charity cash
2:33pm Wednesday 5th September 2012 in Local news
AN animal petting day has helped raise money for a children’s charity.
The event, at Old MacDonald’s Farm, South Weald, was held at the end of last month and £102 was raised for the Children’s Trust.
The charity provides care and therapy for children with complex health needs and a rehabilitation service for children with an acquired brain injury.
Alby Dobinson, 17, of Romford, helped during the day and collected donations for the trust, where he received rehabilitation after a road accident in 2008.
Barnie the Bear mascot from the trust chatted with youngsters and volunteers also provided face painting, games and a lucky dip.
