Animal lovers are being urged to join in the celebrations as the RSPCA’s One Fun Day returns to Worcestershire.

One Fun Day is back this year following virtual events in 2020 and 2021 - and will take place at The Holdings Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre in Kempsey, run by the RSPCA Worcester and Mid-Worcestershire Branch.

It will be one of more than 40 other events happening simultaneously to support the RSPCA’s network of branches, animal centres and all of the animals in their care.

The charity’s events manager Jo Hockley said: “We held a pilot One Fun Day back in 2019 and it proved to be a massive success - so we were keen to make it an annual event in the RSPCA calendar.

“But then with the pandemic, everything was turned upside down and live events were put on hold - until now.

“We did hold virtual events in 2020 and 2021 - which were really well supported but we are delighted that this year we can hold it ‘In Real Life’.

“There will be stalls, food and drink, face painting, crafts and entertainment - plus at many events, there will be a dog show and the chance to be crowned winner of our nationwide PonyCycle championship.

“All our One Fun Day events are designed for us to celebrate being one RSPCA - bringing together our amazing family of branches, centres, shops and others -  and raise valuable funds to directly help animals in your local area.
