Woodcroft Vets turns 40!

This year Woodcroft Vets celebrated our 40th anniversary. Since opening in 1976, the practice has gone from strength to strength, now having 6 first opinion branches across Stockport and Wilmslow as well as a state of the art hospital and referral centre in Cheadle Hulme, providing 24/7 emergency care to thousands of clients and their pets.

To celebrate this fantastic occasion, we held an open day at our Cheadle Centre on Councillor Lane, with face painting, a raffle and tombola, a petting pony from the Animal Sanctuary in Wilmslow, plus we gave behind the scenes tours of our fantastic centre! There were so many prizes to be won on the day and everyone enjoyed joining us for some delicious cakes that were on sale.

Woodcroft Vets could not have continued to provide 40 years of expert veterinary care without the support of our loyal customers and their wonderful pets. We are extremely grateful to everyone for continuing to support us and wanted to take the opportunity to mark our 40th birthday by giving something back to the local community. 

We therefore decided that every penny that we raised from our open day, from raffle ticket sales, to the donations from our cake stall would be donated to St Ann’s Hospice in Heald Green. This local charity has provided care to the families of many of our staff members and we are sure that you will all have heard of the amazing work that they do at the hospice, whilst relying mainly on donations to survive. We were determined to try and raise them as much money as possible, and their chief executive (and BBC Radio Manchester Presenter) Eamonn O’Neal, joined us at the open day to draw the winning raffle tickets for us!

We are absolutely delighted to have raised a total of £640.41 for the charity and would like to thank everyone who supported us on the day, from the staff members who gave up their Sunday to help out on the day and baked delicious cakes, the clients who came down and joined in the fun, and all of the very generous businesses who donated some fantastic raffle prizes.

We would also like to offer special thanks to the Animal Sanctuary in Wilmslow who brought Teabag the pony down to the centre for a few hours to meet everyone. The Animal Sanctuary provides care for unwanted, abandoned, or homeless animals and receives no government funding, relying entirely on donations. You can find out more about their work on their website.

We are extremely proud to have been part of the community for the past 40 years and we look forward to caring for your pets for the next 40 years and beyond!
