VOLUNTEERS got up close to animals as part of a taster day.

Hadleigh Farm Rare Breed Centre in Castle Lane, Hadleigh, held the event on Sunday, March 20 from 10am until 1.30pm.

Animal lovers got the chance to help out for the day during the event.

Emma Sayer, Rare Breeds Centre operations manager said: "Thank you to all our volunteers who took part in our volunteer taster day.

"The team got stuck in to poop scooping, maintaining our willow maze and socialising with our goats."
