Justine Crookall, who is running the appeal for the sixth year running, is asking people to fill a box or bag with food, toys, and treats for the animals to enjoy over the festive period.

She said: “In the past years the appeal has been a huge success with more than 200 boxes last year.

“The drop off points this year are Heath Vets in Burgess Hill and Hurstpierpoint, Cootes Vets in Burgess Hill and A Coombs Pet Centre in Hove.”

Raystede Centre for Animal Welfare has been caring for animals for more than 60 years.

Every year, it rescues, re-homes or provides sanctuary for more than 1,500 animals including dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, horses and donkeys.  

People who wish to donate items can take them direct to the sanctuary or to Justine direct.

For a copy of the wish list, email christmasboxappeal@gmail.com or call 07999 912147. 

People can also find the appeal on Facebook at www.facebook.com/groups/xmasboxappeal.

The closing date for all donations is Friday, December 14.
