The Ark Animal Rescue and Retirement Home appeared on BBC One’s ‘The One Show’ yesterday evening (Wednesday) following last month’s news that ELDC has issued a noise abatement notice against the organisation following a noise complaint from a neighbour.

As reported previously, the North Somercotes-based charity has been overwhelmed with support from the community after the noise abatement notice was issued.

During the programme, owner Sue Rice was handed a £10,000 cheque from a local couple, David and Shelly, who wish to support The Ark when it needs it most.

The neighbour who made the noise complaint refused to be interviewed on the programme.
