The Basildon and District Fund-raising Committee of the PDSA had realised that their was a real need for a new Animal hospital in the Basildon Area, especially as the nearest PDSA facilities are currently in Romford and Southend. At long last this hospital is now being built and is in The Vange High Road, Basildon and they aim to be open in the Summer.
Anyone wishing to help could they please contact Burt on 01268 451373 The same number please if you have any further fund raising ideas or wishing to join the Basildon Section of the PDSA.
