The charity, which provides animal learning experiences for people with a range of disabilities held the day to raise funds and awareness of its work.

Just before the open day, Animal Antiks announced that Nathan Cooper, a familiar voice on Mix 96 and BBC Radio Oxford’s football commentaries, was to be its new patron.
