Pupils, staff, parents and dogs from Slindon College recently took part in a whole school sponsored walk from the College to Bignor, across the downs. On one of the very few fine and sunny days enjoyed this year, the walkers were greeted half-way with drinks and refreshments before returning to the college. On Monday 1st July they presented a cheque for £850.00 to Mount Noddy animal rescue centre. Keith O’Dell, Chairman of the centre said “We are delighted to receive this very generous donation from the boys at the College. We are currently fundraising for a new isolation unit at Mount Noddy which will cost £175,000. This will enable us to isolate new arrivals who we suspect may be suffering with an illness, so they can receive the relevant veterinary treatment, prior to being re-homed”.

Jenny Davies, Registrar of Slindon College added “Our Primary Class boys were very pleased to be given a guided tour of Mount Noddy by Susie Carter, Kennel Supervisor when they were able to meet many cats and dogs awaiting re-homing. It is good for them to have raised funds for something so close to home and we hope to continue to support Mount Noddy in the future”
