We really sorry that we can’t hold our Christmas Giving Evening this year due to Covid Teir 2 restrictions. We will really miss seeing you all at our very festive evening, but like everyone we are looking forward to next year when we hope things will be more back to normal.
We’d like to say a very big thank you to our amazing supporters for everything you have done for us this year. You have given so generously to help us through both lockdowns, and without your kindness we don’t know if we would still be here now. We will never be able to thank you enough for the lifeline you have given us this year.
A number of people have asked us how they can donate some gifts for the animals in our care this Christmas, and there are still many ways to do so even though we have to keep our rescue centre closed. Below is our animals’ Christmas letter to Santa, along with a list of retailers, some local and some online, where you can purchase items from those lists.
Thank you so much – we are really grateful for your incredible support, as always.
