A Christmas celebration is taking place in aid of an animal charity in Cirencester.

Join the Cotswolds Dogs and Cats Home at St Mary's Church on Saturday, December 8, at 6.45pm for a magical evening of Christmas celebration and a chance to help change the life of a vulnerable animal.

The celebration is an annual event first started by the charity's patron actress Lisa Maxwell four years ago in aid of the charity.

Lisa is passionate about the work of the charity and said: "Many of us share our life with a much loved and treasured four-legged friend, sadly this isn't the case for every animal and many will spend their Christmas feeling frightened, hungry and vulnerable."

There will be performances from nternational Soprano Abigail Iveson, the BBC's Alex Lovell and the Pamoja Gospel Choir

Tickets are available online at cdch.org.uk or through the charity's ten shops.
