A generous funeral director in Hoyland Common has given a helping hand to a nearby animal rescue charity.


S and W Riding Funeral Service’s Darren Lippett presented a cheque for £200 to staff from the Barnsley Animal Rescue Charity shop in Hoyland Road, Hoyland Common, on Wednesday.


BARC helps to provide care for abandoned animals in Barnsley with its kennels, cattery and rabbit sanctuary, run by animal welfare experts.


Darren, 39, said: “We took over the running of this branch and it has been a bit neglected. We are trying to get it up and running and get involved in the community.”
