Give abandoned pets a new life

Sir,

I am appealing to all animal lovers to join me in supporting The Blue Cross Tea Party, a nationwide fundraising event to help raise money for animals in need.

My cocker spaniel George and my cat Wilson mean the world to me and they are lucky that we are able to provide the care they need. But not all pets are as lucky as they are.

Every year, this wonderful charity takes in thousands of unwanted and abandoned pets and horses and gives them a second chance in loving new homes. And its hospitals care for sick and injured animals who would otherwise go untreated.

But they rely on donations from the public to provide this vital care for our nation’s pets. You can help by taking part in The Blue Cross Tea Party.

We all love a cup of tea and a piece of cake so why not hold a tea party for family, friends or work colleagues .

All the funds raised will help The Blue Cross care for animals with nowhere else to turn, and every penny really does count.

So go on, put the kettle on and sign up now at bluecrossteaparty.org.uk or phone 08444 993 663.
