Mayhew’s CEO, Caroline Yates, said, “It was a fantastic night and we raised an incredibly amount. Tinsel & Tails is always a fantastic event, bringing together our dogs, guests, supporters and celebrity friends for one night only.

“The fundraiser was a great opportunity to highlight Mayhew’s range of proactive community outreach work including our onsite vet clinic, addressing animal welfare cases, working with the homeless and our ground-breaking work in Afghanistan.

“We receive no lottery or government funding, so rely solely on the generous donations of our supporters. The money raised from the evening will go towards us helping more animals in need in the UK and overseas.”
