Peter Andre and his team are Here 2 Help in Hailsham, East Sussex. They’re answering an SOS call from two young men, Chris and Terry who desperately need help with their animal rescue centre, Happy Endings. This centre promises to never put an animal down if it can be saved and re-homed. Setting up the sanctuary has meant they haven’t had a holiday, new clothes or been on a date with each other in over five years, as all their free time is given to the animals. They’re hoping Peter and Team Andre can help them recruit volunteers, re-home animals and increase the profile of the centre.
Peter’s first mission is to get Chris some time off from his full time job at a car service centre and to make sure that happens he strikes a deal with Chris’ boss to service a car. After deciding on holding an Open Day at the centre to spread the word about this amazing yet unknown charity, he ambushes local radio station, Heart FM. He manages to get through the door and the deal is on! Peter can promote Happy Endings Open Day if they can have some fun with him live on air!!
Peter is determined to make sure Chris and Terry have their first night off in over five years. He arranges a night away at a five-star hotel in Brighton. Not satisfied with that, Peter wants them to travel to the coast in style. He rocks up at a luxury car hire company in the hope of blagging them a magnificent motor. The deal is Terry and Chris get the car and a chauffeur, if Peter valets a hummer.
Team Andre also get to work making over the rabbit hutch, cleaning out the animals and they hatch a plan with the chickens. The final event, the Open Day, is a great success, the centre signs up lots of potential new volunteers, find lots of possible new homes for their animals and raise more funds than they expected. They’ve never done anything like this before and as Chris and Terry reflect back on the four days, Peter and the team have spent with them they are moved to tears and know life at the centre is only going to get better for them and the animals. As Peter says when he leaves, “It’s not an ending, it’s a beginning.”
