Norfolk and Suffolk Animal Trust

There is one week left to vote for a Great Yarmouth animal charity to receive a share of £500,000 of funding.

The money is being made available by Pets at Home and Norfolk and Suffolk Animal Trust is in the running to receive a share of the funding.

One large national charity will receive £52,500, while charities within each store’s region will be awarded increments of £5,000, £2,500 and £1,000.

An additional £250 worth of funding will also be donated to 10 runners up in each region.

James Coe, store manager at Pets at Home Great Yarmouth, said: “We’d love for our local cause to be among the winners that secure a share of the £500,000 that’s up for grabs and encourage our customers and Great Yarmouth animal lovers alike to vote to support their favourite charities.”
