Actress and well known dog lover Gemma Atkinson has this week launched her fundraising campaign in aid of Lancashire based Bleaksholt Animal Sanctuary.
A vice patron of the animal sanctuary, Gemma is taking part in the Great Manchester 10k run to raise valuable funds to build new kennels and help the sanctuary home the unwanted pets arriving in their care.

Speaking about the run Gemma said: “I used to run for Manchester as a teenager but in the 100m sprint so it’s a completely different fitness requirement to run long distance. Any donations to our just giving page will be hugely appreciated. Even £2 will help buy us some dog or cat food.”
Apparently Gemma has also promised to dress in fancy dress for the event! The sanctuary relies on donations and legacies to offer a safe haven.
