THREE secondary school students have collaborated with an RSPCA volunteer to produce a cookery book.
Volunteer Margret Turner, from Hayling Island, was inspired to fundraise for the Stubbington Ark, an RSPCA animal shelter, after she rehomed a dog from there.
The students – Katya Sheath, Meg Dunlop and Bronwyn Lee – from King Edward VI School in Southampton all pitched in to help Margret make the book called the Stubbington Ark Cookery Book, which features unusual recipes.
Margret said: ‘When Boycie, our seven-year-old Staffie, came to our home we had no idea how much he would change our lives.
‘At first he would shy away from his food bowl and only eat out of our hands.
‘With love and a great deal of patience, Boycie is now a fun loving Staffie who is a friend to everyone.
‘I decided to write this cookery book to raise funds for the RSPCA Solent Branch Stubbington Ark and the students Meg, Katya and Bronwyn all helped make the book a reality.’
The book will be on sale at the school, the RSPCA Shelter and Stubbington Ark charity shops in Fareham and Portsmouth for £5.
Alternatively, the books can be purchased by calling 01329 666916.
All proceeds from the sale of the book will go towards caring for the animals at the RSPCA-run Stubbington Ark Animal Shelter, near Fareham.
