Scaredy cats beware! RSPCA Block Fen Animal Centre’s lining up Halloween fun

ANIMALS will have the chance to get a little spooky at a Fenland centre when staff host a weekend of Halloween fun.

Workers at the RSPCA Block Fen Animal Centre in Wimblington have lined up an array of competitions and games on October 29 and 30 to celebrate the occasion.

The centre will also hold a photographic competition and are urging visitors to send in photos of their cats in a natural environment to stand a chance of winning.

Kirstyn Gaunt, the centre’s deputy manager said: “We thought that the photographic competition would be a fun way to raise money for the centre, and people get to show off their photographic skills.

“Halloween is notoriously linked with black cats of which we currently have plenty looking for new homes so we hope lots of people will pop along to the centre during our event and have some fun and perhaps even consider adopting an animal.”
