Garden centre hosting animal Easter event in aid of sanctuary
3:20pm Saturday 23rd March 2013 in News
RESCUED orphan, bottle fed lambs, assorted bantam chickens and naughty goats will all be part of the Easter festivities at Littleheath Garden Centre on Easter Saturday, March 30 from 9am-5.30pm
The lambs, who have all been rejected by their mothers, live along with 170 rescued animals at the Farm Animal and Bird Sanctuary Trust in Tardebigge, and will be at the garden centre helping to raise funds for the sanctuary.
Highlights of the day include an Easter Egg Trail, where youngsters can find clues and win an Easter egg, a colouring competition with lots of prizes, the chance to meet the centre’s very friendly giant bunny, and have photos taken with him, and plenty of ideas and inspiration for gardening entusiasts. Entry is free.
If the sun shines there will be outdoor activities but should it rain or snow, the fun will all take place inside.
Maureen Lawless, trustee of the Farm Animal & Bird Sanctuary, said: “Not only will it help us raise funds but it will give children the chance to see baby lambs and meet the goats and chickens.
“I think combining charities for an event like this is very community-spirited.”
Liz Fraser from Littleheath added: “As always at Littleheath, we are more than happy to support our local charities and will continue to do so.”
