A Hallowe’en event at Foxhall Veterinary Clinic in Ruskington raised a scarily good £600 for Hollie’s Animal Rehoming Trust (Hart).

This extra money brings the total raised in October to almost £900.

Staff went all out for the Halloween event, with a lucky dip cauldron full of gunge, and a theatre with a mannequin having surgery.

Organiser Joanna Crinks said: “It was such an amazing day. It was my first fundraising event for Hart and I thoroughly enjoyed it.”

“We have a great team that work their socks off for our animals.”

The turnout was great and visitors were joined by Pirate Gold from BBC Lincolnshire, and Hart mascot Nigel.

Visitors also met some of the cats at Hart in need of a loving home and, pending further checks, seven cats will be rehomed as a result.

Joanna said: “Seven unwanted cats will now have families for Christmas. We can’t ask for much more than that.”

Work does not stop there for the trust, as cats like Trixie and Tommy pictured are looking for loving homes.
