Give a Meal for Christmas 2021

At Parker & Crowther Vets every year we like to support local animal charities during the Christmas period by offering clients to drop any food donations at our local branches. With the success of our last year campaign with an online donation page, this year we have decided to run both the food drop off and the donation page, in case you are unable to drop off at one of our branches.


From 29.11.2021 to 21.12.2021. 

Woodlands Animal Sanctuary provides connections around our local area and our staff have provided support and help to this charity over many years. Any donation amount would be fantastic and we send a huge thank you to everyone who donates and from all the team at Parker & Crowther Vets we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year. We will announce the final donation amount on our Facebook page on or around 23.12.2021.
