Staff at a Spalding vets got baking at Easter to raise money for National Pet Month.

The charity holds the event each year, with the aim of promoting responsible pet ownership and to make the public aware of the benefits of pets and the contribution they make to our society.

It is also a way of letting owners know about the pet services available to them. Each year a whole host of pet-tastic events are held, from dog shows to fairs, perfect pet competitions and bake days.

All the money goes towards bringing together animal welfare charities, pet businesses, youth groups and pet owners, to improve the welfare of pets.

At Riverside Vets in Cradge Bank, staff baked cakes and held a raffle on an Easter tree.

So far £250 has been raised for Radcliffe Donkey Sanctuary and the Buttercup Sanctuary for Goats.

Karen Rayner, receptionist, said: “We are delighted with how well it went. £250 in just four days is amazing – and we are still going.”
