WE have an abundance of kind residents in Bolton., always ready to donate to a worthy cause.

However, we aren’t always aware of the truth as we are out running races, shaking collecting boxes etc for a charity that “helps” cure diseases.

I find it atrocious that in 2017, more than 10,000 animals were involved in cruel experiments everyday in the UK alone.

Despite being a nation of animal lovers, the UK remains one of Europe’s worst offenders.

There are worrying signs that Brexit could lead to an increase.

This is preposterous when there are more suitable, efficient alternative methods.

Check before you part with your money.
