With Weston Favell shopping centre being right at the heart of the local community, we love to welcome charities into the centre to show support, help them raise money and increase awareness. Our target is to help local charities and groups raise £15,000 in 2017 in our centre.
Could your local charity or group benefit from a fundraising event or awareness day in the centre?

Animals in Need were in the centre in February and managed to collect £223.00 towards their organisation. Here is a little bit about Animals in Need-
Animals In Need is a voluntary organisation dedicated to rescuing sick, injured, trapped and distressed wild and domestic animals. They provide veterinary treatment where necessary, care for and rehabilitate animals until they can be released or re-homed. Animals In Need was set up in 1990, the aim of the organization is alleviate suffering in animals.
Animals In Need is a rescue organization run solely by volunteers, attending animal casualties in the Northamptonshire area. We attend to both domestic and wild animals, and in 1999 were asked by Northamptonshire Police to work with them attending road traffic accidents and out of hours emergencies.
Feeding and caring for the injured animals we rescue is most important especially in cases of young orphaned birds, which need hand feeding every hour from dawn till dusk. Also young hedgehogs which haven't reached the required weight to survive hibernation over the winter months, need to be kept warm and fed as do swans that have incurred injuries, many from fishing tackle that they have swallowed or become entangled in.
