Animal charity event set to be a 'roaring' success

The public will get the chance to see lions and tigers in the flesh when a Kent charity opens its doors for a fundraising event.

The Wildlife Heritage Foundation is holding a barbecue lunch and concert at their base in Smarden, near Maidstone on the 30th of September.

People will be able to see the big cats up close and personal.

Earlier this year thousands turned out for the charity's open day. Cars were queuing for miles to get in to see the animals.

It's hoped September's event will raise much needed funds for the conservation and protection of many species of animal.
