A TREE of thanks for donors made by artist and sculptor Bill Huddlestone was placed in the memorial garden at the Birmingham RSPCA centre on Newbrook Farm, Frankley, last week.
The structure which is now the centrepiece of the garden took Mr Huddlestone over 150 hours to craft by hand, encompassing around a mile-and-a-half of electrical wires, galvanised wires and threaded steel bars.
Each leaf was made into a tag and engraved with the names of the people who donated to the centre.
The memorial garden is built upon the graves of the animals which were in the graveyard at the old RSPCA centre, in Barnes Hill.
That was moved last year.
Mr Huddlestone said after spending so long on the project he is relieved to see the tree finally in place.
