Brent Lodge Bird & Wildlife Trust

Wildlife Hospital, Chichester, West Sussex

Brent Lodge Bird & Wildlife Trust is a wildlife hospital based in West Sussex. We are a voluntary organisation that has been treating and rehabilitating injured, sick and orphaned wildlife for over 40 years. We receive over 3,000 patients each year.

We invite you to watch our short informational video above (tap it to play) for more information. Further details about the organisation are also available on our About Us page.

Approval for new hospital re-development

We are really pleased to say that we received confirmation that our plans were successful and given permission to go ahead with the site re-build.

The re-build is required due to the ever-increasing number and variety of patients we are treating each year, recently we had to turn patients away due to lack of space which is not what we like to do. We are just simply running out of room to safely rehabilitate patients and having to ‘house’ birds and mammals in the same area meaning some animals are located too close to their natural predators, which is not ideal. Much of the hospital was built in the 1980s on a shoestring budget, so the buildings are no longer fit for purpose and is not an ideal working environment for staff and volunteers.

As well as a new hospital we also have plans to build several new outside enclosures, an education room and a reception area. The redevelopment will be staged in five phases, with a target to complete the final build of the hospital within three years. As a relatively small organisation we are limited to generous voluntary funds, so the success of our project is determined by increased funding from the community.

PayPal

We are delighted to say we’ve now added Paypal as a payment function, with all the benefits of shopping with Paypal as a payment option on the Brent Lodge online shop checkout. Quick, easy and simple to use, using the PayPal function takes under a minute. So why not treat yourself.

Thank you to everyone who voted for us

We were really lucky and humbled to receive the Hero to Animal award presented to us by Fred Dineage at the Observer Community Awards. Receiving this award means so much to us and we would like to thank everyone who voted for us.

 

Warm welcome from Bognor Regis

We are really excited to announce that we have opened our 4th shop in Bognor Regis.

The shop was officially opened by the Mayor of Bognor. We look forward to a growing success in the town and hope to see many of our local supporters.

Please drop by to see some of our bargains and have a chat with our lovely staff and volunteers. Donations of stock can be dropped off at our shop, so if you are planning a clear out in the new year please think of us for any furniture, clothes or unwanted gifts.

Brent Lodge Wildlife Winter Wonderland a great success!

Thank you for all of your support at our Brent Lodge Wildlife Winter Wonderland on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th November.

It was a great success and enjoyed by all, helping to raise over £6,500 towards the care and treatment we provide our patients.

“Thank you for organising a wonderful event; we’ll certainly be visiting again although I do tend to take newspapers etc to the shop in Havant as much closer. Good luck with all your new initiatives”

It was our first visit today as we’re from Kent but have family in Selsey. What a wonderful place. We really enjoyed it , & we picked up a few Xmas presents from the stalls. Everyone was so friendly & we can’t wait to come back again”

“We had a lovely day at the wildlife hospital . Everyone very friendly love the cakes & coffee. Great atmosphere well done to all the volunteers.”

Thank you everyone for your support, we look forward to seeing you all again soon.

Our Wonderful Sponsors!

A big thank you to The Sign Shop in Chichester and Highhouse Insurance in Selsey, for kindly sponsoring our new van.

This van is essential to the running of our shops, it helps to deliver and pick up fresh stock to and from our charity shops which helps to supply a vital income to the charity.

You can see some of our other kind sponsors via our dedicated sponsors page.

Brent Lodge Extends Hospital Opening Hours and Care

Dear all,

I am informing you all, that Brent Lodge has now extended it’s hospital opening hours. The hospital will now be fully staffed and open from 09:30 – 18:30. The hospital will then revert to it’s emergency helpline number after 18:30, which is our local vet Alphapet 01243 842832 who runs a 24 hour helpline.

This means we can care for more wildlife, and help rehabilitate more patients back into the wild.

This has only been possible from all the support, and donations provided to us. The extra open hours we have, will also help to provide greater care and more efficiently to the many baby birds and mammals we will receive.

Please call us first if you have discovered any injured animal or abandoned wildlife, by seeking some basic advice could mean that they can stay in the wild where they have a greater chance of survival.

Thank you for all of your ongoing support.

Robert Knight

(General Manager)

We need your help to fundraise for Brent Lodge.

With ever increasing costs to help provide treatment for the 3,000 or so Wildlife patients we care for each, we are always looking for new ways to raise much needed funds.

As a result we are looking for some dedicated supporters who would like to help fundraise for Brent Lodge. This can be absolutely anything from a small cake sale to raise a few pounds or something larger to raise hundreds of pounds.

If this is something you would like to support us with then please get in contact with us, we can then make you an official fundraiser and add your details to our fundraising diary and give your efforts all the acknowledgement it deserves.

There are also many fetes, fairs and car boot sales to take part in, so alternatively if you like to support us by selling goods then we can certainly help you out with that.

Please take a look at our dedicated fundraising page, to find out ways you can support and raise funds for Brent Lodge. Your help would make such a difference and means we can continue the work we do.
