A FLEA market is to support a local charity that rescues homeless pets in need.
The Kensal Flea, a stylish market at The Paradise Club, Kensal Green, will donate 50 per cent of its door takings to local charity The Mayhew Animal Home at its event this Saturday .
The Mayhew works to rescue and rehome cats, dogs and rabbits, and will be bringing two of its homeless dogs to the market to meet and greet local people supporting the event.
One of the dogs going along to the event will be three-legged, Bernard, a two year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier, who arrived at the centre in February with a severe leg injury.
The limb needed to be amputated by the charity’s vet team. Bernard is now up for adoption and looking for a new home.
The Mayhew events officer, Lisa Houlihan, said: “We were delighted when the Kensal Flea market approached us with the news they were going to donate some of their takings to our animal charity. We love being able to meet people in our local community and tell them more about the work we do.
"It’s set to be a fantastic afternoon out and we are looking forward to taking our dogs to the market and meeting lots of new people in such stylish surroundings.”
Organiser of The Kensal Flea Market, Juliet Kinsman, said: "The Mayhew Animal Home is a cherished local charity for all the wonderful work it does with cats and dogs, so who better to support with half of Kensal Flea's door takings. Also, as a neighbourhood of animal lovers, we are thrilled to have some of their homeless dogs coming along to the Paradise, which is only down the road from The Mayhew, and hopefully some of the cute pooches might meet a new owner."
The market runs from 11.30 to 5pm at Paradise, Kilburn Lane, Kensal Green.
