Enter if you dare! Goodmayes Veterinary centre opens up to the public
An enter if you dare room filled with an eight foot python, huge iguana and scorpions attracted those brave of heart when a veterinary practice flung open its doors.
The staff at the Animal Ark Veterinary Centre were also put in the docks and had wet sponges thrown at them and raised �2,000 for charity in the process.
Nathan Basha, practice manager, said: “It was fantastic, people came down for the day and there was a real feel good atmosphere.”
The centre, in Goodmayes Avenue, Goodmayes held the open day in celebration of their 10th anniversary on Sunday.
Mr Basha said: “Ten bikes from the British Motorbike Federation came down and brought pet food which they donated. It’s something they do every year.”
