At last year’s Hollywoof event Battersea Ambassador David Gandy explained that fundraisers like this are hugely important to the charity’s survival.

He said: “A lot of people don’t realise it costs £36,000 a day and more and more now to keep the centres running and that’s all from private donations.”

Jacqueline Wilson paid tribute to the staff and volunteers at the centre.

She said: I think all the staff are wonderful and all the volunteers who are very carefully picked and trained – everybody absolutely adores those animals.”

Money raised will go directly to help the charity’s homeless pooches and felines.
