Annie Marriott from the charity said: “Our volunteer recruitment day is perfect for people making new year resolutions to get fitter, lose weight and do some charity work.”

No experience is required, people just need to have an affinity and love of all animals.

As well as volunteers, the charity is appealing for people to donate any unwanted Christmas presents they have.

Animals In Need would be able to use these in its charity shop or on its fundraising stalls at events held around the county during the year.
