ANIMAL mad Silhillians are being urged to dig deep for RSPCA week - which starts next Monday.
Collections will take place at three branches of Tesco - Monkspath, Shirley and Sheldon. People are being asked if they could spare a couple of hours to rattle a tin outside their local store.
Borough pubs are also getting involved - the Highwood Pub, on Highwood Avenue, has organised quizzes, a disco and a motorbike rally.
l To book your place at the pub events call 0121 743 6154. For the general knowledge quiz - on April 28 - ring Emrys Davies on 0121 743 0840. If you can help out the RSPCA with their local collections call Helen Tuite on 0300 123 8677.
