Did you know that every time you bought a pack of Frontline Combo flea treatment recently you were helping a local animal charity? The company that produces Frontline has been donating an amount of money, per pack sold, to local charities of our choice.

We chose two charities that regularly work alongside Spring Lodge who help us with stray and injured animals. ‘Hedgehog Haven’ is a rescue and advice centre based in Tiptree that covers the Colchester and Frinton area. It is run by volunteers who offer seasonal advice and a sanctuary for sick and injured hedgehogs. For more information go to www.hedgehoghavenessex.co.uk.

Blackberry Patch is a rabbit and Guinea Pig rescue based in Chelmsford. They can provide advice and help to people and also have rabbits and Guinea Pigs needed new homes. For more information go to www.blackberrypatch.co.uk.

We have so far raised £246.25 for these charities.
