Southside Broadcasting based at James Cook Hospital continue to raise cash for the RAW animal shelter in Whitby and the Hope animal sanctury between Skinningrove and Loftus.
And with the work being carried out in some of the war torn regions and disaster areas around the world by Vet Stuart Easby, it will be non stop for for the foreseeable future.
Two of their latest events which took place recently included a sponsored rowing fundraiser and a fun-day in Scarborough. With the help of the North Bay Railway and The Military Adventure Park Scarborough providing the inflatable assault course and motorised Mini-tanks a great day was had by all.
On Saturday 26th September, Robin Hoods Bay cubs and scouts rowed down the River Esk to help raise money in aid of Raw Animal Rescue.

Raw Animal Rescue near Whitby is a charity run by selfless couple Norma and Dennis Carrick; they shelter everything from sheep, rabbits, ducks, cats and dogs.
The aim of the event was to raise money and awareness of the charity and also allowing the cubs to have fun whilst helping their local community.
Scout Leader of 3 years Louie Milner, 22, who helped organise the event from Ruswarp to Sleights, highlights the fantastic work Norma and Dennis do for the animals, he comments on them relying on funding from others and the use of their own pensions to carry on their work of caring for these animals in need.
Mr. Milner also wanted to thank Gary and Sandra of Ruswarp pleasure boats who kindly donated for the day 8 boats and one canoe because, “without them this could not have gone ahead”.
The rowing fundraiser was also organised to help raise funds for Stuart Easby, a retired vet who intends to go to South Africa to help distribute 1500 healthy animals to replace all that died during the drought and give professional advice on how to look after them.
If anyone requires any further information on Raw Animal Rescue or would like to make a donation can contact Mr and Mrs Carrick on 01947 880583.
