Builders’ merchants Thompson & Parkes joined in with Wolverley Animal Centre’s celebrations at their Community Thank You Afternoon.
The builders merchant helped the centre with the supply of a range of building materials to help them build their new African House; the first inhabitants are meerkats Marvin and Lucky.
Centre manager Lucy Cull said: “Thompson & Parkes have been incredibly supportive and engaged with our projects and it is great to work with a local supplier who takes an interest in the community.
“Their generosity has ensured that our projects have been completed to a high standard and ensured that our animals have the best accommodation possible.”
Thompson & Parkes has helped a number of local schools, nurseries and charities with a variety of community projects in the areas in which they operate.
General manager, Gary Watts, said: “We were pleased to be invited to their community afternoon and to see just how much they’ve achieved developing the centre over recent months, and of course to see their new African House up and running and meet Marvin and Lucky.
“As a local business we are happy to offer our support to Wolverley Animal Centre and pleased that we could help with the materials they needed for their new African House.”
