Maisie Williams has donated £50,000 to Bristol Animal Rescue Centre after it was left struggling during the COVID-19 crisis.

The Game Of Thrones star, 23, adopted her own pet pooch, Sonny, from the shelter in 2016 and decided to help out after discovering online they were facing difficulties.

Maisie's £50,000 will be used to help the rescue centre run for a month as it is set to lose approximately £250,000 in income during the pandemic.

Staff are still working at the Bristol animal centre, which is shut to the public, while its future fundraising events and adoptions have been postponed due to the crisis.

Maisie said: 'Bristol A.R.C. changes the lives of animals everyday and Sonny, my dog who I adopted from them a few years ago, has changed my life in many ways for the better.

'It's so important in these difficult times not to forget about charities like Bristol A.R.C. that need our help.

Meanwhile manager, Jodie Hayward, said: 'To know that Maisie respects and loves what we do so much means the world to us.

'I couldn't believe it when I heard what she had done to support us, I had to hold back a few tears!

'It really will make the world of difference to us right now and we can't thank her enough for her generosity.'
