Animals to feast on giant 37-stone pumpkin after kind donation from Budgens store
ANIMALS at a Cambridgeshire animal shelter will be feasting on a giant 37-stone pumpkin following a kind donation from staff at a Budgens store.
The shop, in Sheep Market, St Ives, decided to donate the pumpkin to Wood Green Animal Shelters in Godmanchester after holding a ‘guess the weight of the pumpkin’ competition.
Mr Male, store manager, said: “The pumpkin was simply too big to carve so we thought that as Wood Green is a charity which rehomes field animals, they would be able to put the pumkin to best use.”
Goats, sheep, horses, pigs and other field animals are just some of the 5,000 animals that are rehomed by the charity every year.
Deborah Wild, the field section manager at Wood Green, said: “We are extremely grateful to everyone at Budgens for their generous donation.

“We rely heavily on donations of food for our field animals and given the size of this pumpkin, it is sure to keep our animals full for a few days.”
