“Many brave things were done that night, but none were more brave than those done by men playing minute after minute..."

Meet the One Day Team Pets!
Hooray, the Easter holidays have arrived! Along with a bit of sunshine and bucketloads of chocolate (fingers crossed!) comes the opportunity to cosy up with our furry companions.
Over the past year, we’ve spent more time at home than ever before – much to the delight of our dogs and disdain of our cats. We were lucky enough to speak with some of these lesser-seen One Day family members, who took time out of their busy schedules to share their hopes, dreams and top tasty snacks with us. And by ‘share’ we mean ‘tell us about’, because asking them to physically share their favourite treats is a taking things a step too far!
Hello, my name is: Coral
My human’s name is: Clem
My favourite thing in the whole world is: Sun, scavenge and sleep. I spends my days getting as hot as possible, den eating whatevers I want from da floor, den sleeping. I only small so I sleep on my Dad. He make “oof” sounds and I hear bones crunching. Dat’s just the sound of appreciation.
The dinner of my dreams is: Whatevs mate. I not fussy. I like fings wiv green fur, crunchy fings, runny fings, chewy fings. It’s all good.
If I could ban one thing it would be: Angry hoomans and sudden movements. I am safe now and don’t want anyfing hurting me. Please be kind to da animals.
My favourite One Day workshop is: Junk Funk and Scrap Rap. I old street dog so I know da power of junk and da power of funk. Saving environment important and dis workshop cover it all!
Hello, my name is: Mac
My human’s name is: Becky

The dinner of my dreams is: Chicken… no, actually ham. No, probably chicken. Can I say both?
If I could ban one thing it would be: Small children under the age of 2.
My favourite One Day workshop is: My favourite workshop is The Jungle Book. I can definitely identify with the characters in that story, being bold and brave myself.
Hello, my name is: Costa
My human’s name is: Georgina
My favourite thing in the whole world is: Chasing shadows for hours – the excitement never gets old. That and a good tummy rub!
The dinner of my dreams is: Popcorn, I love it as a special treat and failing that ham is pretty good.
If I could ban one thing it would be: Mopeds because the noise drives me crazy. Oh and fireworks, they can go too!
My favourite One Day workshop is: My favourite workshop is Arctic and Antarctic as the harsh landscapes it explores remind me of my home in Tibet.
Hello, my name is: Roo
My human’s name is: Ruth
My favourite thing in the whole world is: Chasing and eating flies, especially those ‘spicy’ stripy ones that go buzz.
The dinner of my dreams is: SHH, DID ANYBODY ELSE JUST HEAR A TIN OF TUNA OPENING?
If I could ban one thing it would be: The terrifying giraffe-brush monster that attacks our house once a month. My mum says it’s called a ‘windoh cleena’ but I know it’s out to get me.
My favourite One Day workshop is: My favourite workshop is Macbeth. As a black cat I feel a huge affinity with witches, plus all that treachery and bloodshed is right up my alley.
Tufty and Betty
Hello, our names are: Tufty and Betty
Our human’s name is: Sarah
Our favourite thing in the whole world is: Sleeping snuggled up together and tearing apart any cuddly toys we can find.
The dinner of our dreams is: Tufty – anything, literally anything. Betty – did I see chicken??
If we could ban one thing it would be: HOOVERS. Scary scary hoovers.
Our favourite One Day workshop is: Dream Big. We both came from rescue centres and needed a bit of helping gaining our confidence and achieving our dreams!
