Margaret Green fundraising and marketing manager, Kate Cross, said: “From all the animals, volunteers and staff at Margaret Green Animal Rescue we would like to extend our sincere thanks to all the customers and staff at the Dolphin Shopping Centre for their tremendous support in 2015.

“Throughout the year the centre has supported us through fundraising activities and sponsorship and this has helped raise awareness of the work we are doing throughout Dorset and Devon, rescuing and rehoming more than 1,200 animals every year.”

Over Christmas, The Santa’s Cinema event saw three showings a day of popular children’s Christmas films, including Frozen, The Snowman, and Shrek the Halls, raising £1,803.51 for Julia’s House, with donations raised from the centre’s Christmas tree increasing the total to more than £3,000.

Dolphin Centre manager John Grinnell said: “It’s been wonderful to support not one, but two of Dorset’s most in-need charities. We’ve had enormous fun working to raise funds for both causes, and have been able to host a number of events throughout the year which have contributed to this.”
