Two Hampshire girls have raised more than £200 for the RSPCA - after spending 24 hours in a kennel. Lily Blench and Hollie Bertie, both aged 12,from Alderholt, Hampshire spend 24 hours in the kennel built by Lily’s dad Chris.
Lily and Holly had magazines and colouring pens to keep them entertained, and Chris delivered food to them to keep them going.
Lily Blench said: “Doing the challenge made us think about all the dogs and any other animals that are shut outside on cold nights. At least we had food, drink and knew we are loved.”
