Donations and Fundraising
The Hertfordshire East Branch of the RSPCA (Charity Number 208244) are a separately registered Branch of the National RSPCA and as such are responsible for raising funds locally. The Herts East Branch heavily relies on the support of donations from the public to fund its work.
This Branch helps to support the National Society who maintains uniformed Inspectors to help prevent animal cruelty. It assists local pet owners by helping with veterinary expenses, and to re-home cats, which often entails boarding them until suitable owners can be found. Remember, if you give direct to the RSPCA Herts East Branch, the money helps local animals.
We are looking for donations of clothing, bric a brac, CDs, DVDs, books and small items of furniture to sell in our shop at 19 Churchyard, Hitchin, Hertfordshire. If you are unable to bring donations to the shop, we can collect (locally). Just contact the office on 01462 672278 or pop into the shop to ask for a collection.
