BROMSGROVE residents flocked to a popular event which has been raising money for a town animal adoption centre for the past 25 years.

The Blue Cross Centre held its annual summer fete on Saturday, (August 31).

The milestone event, held at the Wildmoor Lane-based centre, included a number of fun attractions for all ages.

Those who attended enjoyed rock climbing, a cider drinking festival, stalls, live music, an historical re-enactment group and a dog show.

The dog show also included a special reunion grand parade for former Blue Cross dogs.

The money raised at the event is being donated to the centre, which receives no government funding and relies on public donations to continue its vital work.

To make a donation, call the centre on 0300 777 1460.
