For HODs 2024, our local RSPCA will be holding an exhibition at The Forum

In honour of the RSPCA Mid Norfolk & North Suffolk's 60th anniversary, we're celebrating the history of the branch with a special exhibition at The Forum as part of Norfolk Heritage Open Days 2024.

Taking place from Tuesday 10th to Sunday 15th September, the exhibition will tell the stories of the Branch, from the rescued and rehomed animals, to the volunteers, to the animal centres that were across Norfolk. RSPCA Mid Norfolk & Suffolk are asking for you to share your memories and pictures of the Branch by emailing [email protected].

Whether you've adopted from our local RSPCA, fostered, volunteered as a dog walker or fundraiser, visited one of the previous animal centres on Drayton Road, Dove Street, or East Tuddenham, been offered support or information, attended an education session as a youngster, or even spotted one of the water troughs that the Branch donated to local Cattle Markets, they want to hear from you!

This is your chance to share your stories of the animals that you've loved. The exhibition will capture the history of RSPCA Mid Norfolk & North Suffolk, their impact, and the difference the organisation has made across the counties.

We’re thrilled to be working the RSPCA Mid Norfolk and North Suffolk branch to mark their 60th anniversary. Over the last 30 years, Heritage Open Days has evolved to celebrate our community heritage and the festival is the perfect opportunity to showcase the legacy and continued impact of the branch in the county.

Katie Ellis, Norfolk Heritage Open Days Producer, says

The RSPCA Mid Norfolk & North Suffolk Branch is a small local charity that rescues and rehomes animals in need, provides financial support and advice for local pet owners, and supports local communities through its education outreach programme. It is a separate charity to the National RSPCA and is responsible for its own service provision and fundraising across its branch area.

This small but mighty team promotes excellent animal welfare in a compassionate and practical way, working with communities to improve the lives of animals.
