A table top sale is being held in Sandridge in aid of a charity which campaigns against the fur trade.

The sale will take place in Sandridge Village Hall at 11am on Saturday, March 17, and all money will go towards Respect for Animals.

According to the charity, 85 per cent of fur sold globally is from factory farming of animals such as mink, foxes, chinchilla, ferrets and rabbits.

Respect for Animals is campaigning to make all UK markets fur free, and warns that some woolly hats with pom-poms are sold as fake fur but are in fact real fur, as uncovered in a recent episode of Countryfile on BBC1.

The UK banned fur farming in 2000, and steel-jawed traps which were used to capture animals in the wild were outlawed 50 years ago. However farming and trapping animals for their fur is still legal in most countries.

To donate high-quality items to the sale call 07717 474942.

We were busy moving rotten pieces of wood from the side of the shed when suddenly I felt sharp stabbing pains in my lower legs. Before I had a chance to investigate my son started screaming in pain and it took a few more seconds to realize that we were trampling on a wasps’ nest!
