Move over Simon Cowell, Fenland animal centre launches ‘X Factor for Bunnies’

STEP aside Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole, a new version of the X Factor has arrived in Fenland - and it’s for your pet rabbits.

The RSPCA Block Fen Animal Centre, in Wimblington, March, has launched an ‘X Factor for Bunnies’ competition - searching for Fenland’s cutest rabbit in the run up to Easter.

The centre are inviting the public to send in pictures of their pet bunny, with the winner to be judged at their Easter Eggstravaganza on the 22-25 April.

In true X-factor style, the winner will be decided by the people - with visitors to the centre voting for their favourite bunny from a display of the pictures.

Kirstyn Gaunt, the centre’s deputy manager, said: “This competition is a first for Block Fen Animal Centre and we are very excited about it.

“The beauty of it is it will be judged by visitors to the centre, so deciding the winner is completely in the public’s hands. It’s like the real X Factor - except without a Simon Cowell.

“We want photos of your rabbits in their natural habitats - in the garden, in their hutch or even with children.

“If it works well we want to look at doing it again for other animals. It’s nice to show off your pets.”

To give your pet a chance to become the best bunny in Fenland, send your photograph to Block Fen Animal Centre along with a one pound entry fee. Make sure to write your name and contact details on the back of the picture.

All money raised will go towards the animal centre, which cares for hundreds of animals and costs more than �1,400 a day to run.
