KIND-HEARTED event goers managed to raise more than £2,900 for the Wirral Animal Welfare Association.

The sold-out event, hosted by Radio Wirral presenter and Sky TV's Beverly Macca, saw many people come together to raise awareness for the charity on Friday, September 27 at Hoylake Social Club.

Wirral Animal Welfare Association has spent more than 33 years dedicating its time in rescuing local abandoned or unwanted animals.

Volunteers are on call all day to respond to any reports about local animals and undertake veterinary checks while also paying for any care they may need before finding animals their forever homes.

The evening was full of entertainment and laughs, as Beverly shared stories from her celebrity friends and pound shop woes before making way for the Wirral Animal Welfare Association who gave a speech detailing the work they do.

Local singer Laurence Roach and Poppies performed after the speech while refreshments were provided from Neo Community.

Beverly said: "I was blown away with the amount of support we had for the evening.

"Thank you to everyone who gave their time and services. I was so pleased with the amount raised too.

"I’ve had experience of working with Wirral Animal Welfare Association and they really are amazing and dedicated people.

"The animal welfare always comes first and their care carries on after the animals find their forever home."

A raffle and auction was also held on the evening while local DJ Andy Whitby provided tunes for guests to dance the night away.

Wirral Animal Welfare Association said: "We can’t thank Bev enough, it was a great evening and the amount raised will go towards the treatment of the animals in our care."
