Helping our local Community – Morpeth branch raising funds for Hepscott PRU following attack on animal farm


morpeth branchOur Morpeth branch along with many outraged residents have rallied round to support a children’s learning centre after a sickening attack on its small animal farm.


Five tame ducks, a guinea pig and a goose were brutally killed at the Northumberland Pupil Referral Unit in Hepscott Park after an intruder entered their pen.


The unit provides learning placements for vulnerable children aged seven to 13, who care for the animals themselves.


The youngsters were heartbroken after hearing what had happened to their beloved pets, prompting members of the Morpeth Matters Facebook group to set up a fund-raising page to replace the animals.


Our team spotted this and wanted to pledge their support to help. We will be donating £10 from every home we sell in the next six week period, as well as fundraising at our Morpeth branch.


Tom Dexter, Headteacher, Northumberland Pupil Referral Unit said:


“ The support, comments, feedback and subsequent fund-raising/donations have been truly overwhelming.
“The response has been brilliant. I think people were just outraged by what had happened. Some of these kids have already had a hard life and looking after the animals was part of their education.
“Morpeth Matters comes in for criticism as a place for people to moan, but this shows that when people come together they can achieve something good.”
