“We were delighted to present Brent Lodge with a cheque for £500, raised by staff members at our Christmas Fundraiser 2018.”
This money will help fund part of the new Hedgehog garden, which has been built to aid the re-habilitation of hoggy hospital residences; helping them get back to their natural habitat.

We are really pleased to update you on the progress of our recent rehabilitation cage appeal, we are in need to replace our existing cages, so we can provide better ’housing’ for more patients.
Thanks to the generosity 2 anonymous donors, a remaining legacy donation, Animal Friends Insurance, Marjoorie Coote Animal Trust, and The Audrey Emma Lamb Trust we have now received a total of £13,500 to purchase a block of cages. With further fundraising we hope to purchase more to help with patient care.
We are really honoured to announce us as the winners for Best Rescue Centre UK at this years Animal Star Awards, recognising the care we give to wildlife. We have been congratulated by many of you and whist we appreciate it. I just want to make it clear that this award is for all of our staff, volunteers and Supporters.
You guys are just incredible! Each and every person who gives up their time to help in our quest to look after all of the animals. From those who help to clean and feed them, to fundraising, including those who support us and spread the word of the work we do….. gosh the list could go on!
Honestly. From the very bottom of our hearts, thank you for being amazing and continuing to support us and push us forward to be the best we can be and provide the very best levels of care that we can.
You are all AMAZING and the animals are all so lucky to have a great bunch of people rooting for them. Without you, we couldn’t do what we do.
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. 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 1980’s on a shoestring budget, so the buildings are no longer fit for purpose and is not an ideal environment for staff, volunteers or patients.
As well as a new hospital we also have plans to build several new outside enclosures, quarantine and reception area. The redevelopment will be staged in five phases, with a target to complete the final build of the hospital by 2020. 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.
Thanks to a generous donation of £25,000 from The Hatcher Animal Welfare Trust we were able to construct 12 new outside bird of prey enclosures complete with enrichment gardens, allowing for more flight space resulting in better rehabilitation. Stage 2 to build new water pool enclosures is already underway.
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.

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.
