The Reptile Ranch, in May Bank Road, is holding a party on Saturday, May 11, to mark its 15th anniversary.

It will be holding a raffle and anyone who slithers in will be allowed to take photos with the animals for £2 to raise funds for Haven House Children's Hospice, in Woodford Green.

The shop's co-owner Sandy Allin said: "We've also been running a promotion where we donate £1 from every box of crickets or locusts bought this week to the hospice."

Cold-blooded critters at the ranch include chameleons, bearded dragons, 10ft snakes and turtles. Among the raffle prizes are tickets to go and see the Only Fools Horses musical at Theatre Royal Haymarket in central London and a voucher for a free tattoo.
