Raystede Stargazing Evening

Here at Raystede we will be holding a stargazing evening. If you would like to come, it will be £30.00 per person, which will include a BBQ dinner and a chance to gaze at the stars through different telescopes.

It's the 'Seven Sisters Astronomical Society' that will be running this event for us and you can read more about the 'SSAS' by visiting their website.

Ever wondered what your inner animal is?! Now's your chance to embrace it by dressing up as an animal during National Animal Rescue Appreciation Week, (6th November- 12th November 2016.)

You could organise a dress up day at school, in your work place, on a night out with friends, or just let your imagination run wild.

For every person that takes part, we're asking that you donate £2.00 to help the animals here in our care. You can donate £2.00 by following the link to our justgiving page. 

We'd also love to see photos, so why not post them up on our Facebook site of you dressed as an animal, or you as an animal with your favourite pet!
