A star-studded celebration filled with holiday cheer will be held on December 16th in support of the four-legged friends we hold dear as The Mayhew Animal Home in London welcomes dog devotees and fans of felines to its third annual Tinsel & Tails fundraiser.
During an evening of canines on the red carpet and a holiday feast complete with mince pies and vegetarian fare paired with mulled wine, guests will also have the chance to watch animal-loving luminaries make the season bright for attendees and adorable adoptables alike as they take part in the festivities, including acting as hosts of a fundraising auction and raffle. This year’s list of attending famous friends of Fidos and felines includes:
- Helen George– As Nurse Trixie Franklin in the series Call the Midwife she helps new life come into the world, and through her real life role as a long-time supporter of The Mayhew Animal Home the high-profile multi-pet parent helps dogs and cats who need a new lease on life.
- Peter Egan– As Hugh “Shrimpy” MacClare, the Marquess of Flintshire in the popular period drama Downton Abbey Peter Egan offers TV viewers a peek into the past, but as an animal advocate the actor helps all creatures great and small see the possibility of a better future. Known for using his star wattage to shine a spotlight on such subjects as the plight of moon bears and the need to help animals in Afghanistan, Peter Egan will be making an encore appearance at this year’s Tinsel & Tails event.
- Other celebrities who will show support for the paws cause include iconic comic Bill Bailey, actress Beatie Edney (Highlander), classic film star Sylvia Syms, presenter Wendy Turner Webster and The Barking Blonde’s, Anna Webb and Jo Good.
