London animal welfare charity’s Open Day raises 10k

London-based animal welfare charity, Mayhew recently held its annual Open Day, which raised an incredible £10,000 on the day.

The charity threw a fantastic street part, sponsored by Lily’s Kitchen and ProtectaPet, at their home in Kensal Green on Sunday 13th May.

The day, which was hosted by loyal Mayhew supporter and KISS FM DJ, Pandora Christie, brought together a mix of stalls, activities, games and a raffle including prizes from experience days.

Visitors were treated to a meet and greet session with some of Mayhew’s gorgeous TheraPaws teams, including Debora with her dog Noodle, Peter and Tobi, as well as Katie with her dog Charlie.

Hammersmith and Fulham Mayoress, Rosemary Petitt also attended the event and was given a tour of the home.

The Open Day attracted over 1,000 visitors and raised an incredible 10,000 on the day, which will go towards helping more neglected vulnerable and abandoned animals in need. The day concluded with a special Happily Rehomed Parade, with many of Mayhew’s more recently adopted dogs taking part.

Mayhew’s CEO, Caroline Yates, said: “It was a brilliant day and it was lovely to see so many people with their friends and family enjoying the street party and having a look around the home at all the vital work we do at Mayhew.

“Thank you to everyone who attended and supported Mayhew, we raised an incredible amount of money on the day, which will go towards helping more animals in need.”
