The Latest News from Brent Lodge
Firstly, it was great seeing many of you at our last Open Weekend. It was a wonderful weekend and was a pleasure talking to so many of you. I’m already looking forward to our next one, the 19th & 20th of November.
We are in need of a few small items to help bring the extra special touches to the next weekend. If you have any of the following spare, and you wish it to have a great new home, please do think of us!
We desperately need:
- Plastic garden chairs and patio furniture.
- Bottles of alcohol or soft drinks for our next bottle tombola.
- Volunteers who wish to give up a weekend and come and help. (Will provide lunch vouchers for the weekend)
- Tea, coffee, sugar, hot chocolate and disposable cups.
- Good quality glass display chillers.
- Raffle prizes
- If your a local business and you feel you could offer us sponsorship in return for advertising
All help is much appreciated.
We look forward to meeting you at our summer open weekend on 20th and 21st August.
Our open weekends are really important in helping us raise funds for the treatment, care and rehabilitation of the sick, orphaned, and injured British wildlife patients that are brought to our hospital.
Enjoy yourselves while knowing you are helping the precious animals we care for – could there be a better way to spend a weekend?
Wow how time fly’s, we have been rather busy at Brent Lodge lately, so I wanted to take the time to give you all an update of what’s been happening.
Since my last post, we have taken on some new volunteers and staff who have already started to do wonders. One very kind lady, is going to take the time to bring you all the behind the scenes news of what’s going on at the hospital. She is also going to be able to start that feature I mentioned beforehand, and do one to one interviews with our lovely volunteers and staff, so you can learn more about the great work they do in more detail.
Our brand new buildings are finished and in use!! The new feed store is purpose built, allowing us to hold more food of different types for the animals and have it better protected from the elements. Once again this could not have been possible without the support of all our followers and supports, so again a big thank you from myself and Brent Lodge.
On a personal note from me, it’s been wonderful meeting many of you over these past few months. It has been amazing seeing first hand how everyone helps the charity in different ways. One thing I get asked regularly by our supports and visitor’s to the site is how else could I help?
We have two shops, one in Selsey and another in Havant. We always are looking for volunteers to help in our shops, and always need stock to help generate much needed funds. If you are looking to help Brent Lodge some more and not sure how, a bag of books, clothes, furniture or even a few volunteering hours makes all the difference.
If you would like to know more about Brent Lodge or to catch up on the latest happenings, please do feel free to email in and I will be more than happy to help.
Until next time, take care.
I would like to take this time to update you on the latest news here at Brent Lodge. Firstly my name is Robert Knight and I am the new General Manager for the Charity. I look forward to meeting you all at our shops and events as we work towards helping this amazing Charity.
The building work is well underway at the site and we hope to be in our new feed store very soon. This has only been made possible by the amazing support that you all have given us, so from the very bottom of my heart I thank you on behalf of the Charity.
Our latest newsletter is out, grab a copy and keep update to with the latest animal stories and Brent Lodge news.
Finally, over the next week weeks and months I will keep you updated through website updates and will be excited to run our new feature. “Meet the Staff”. This will be a new feature for Brent Lodge where we will get to go behind the scenes and found out about the volunteers and the staff at the Charity and introduce you to the work they do in more detail.
If you wish to know more or wish to donated to us, please do email in and we will be more than happy to help.
Andrew Fry is an amazing young man. At just 14 he has decided to undertake an amazing challenge that many older than him would consider demanding, all to raise funds for the animals we care for.
Between the 10th and 16th of July 2016 he will be undertaking a sponsored cycle ride from Hayling Island in Hampshire, UK, to Le Mans in France and back, totalling a distance of 350 miles.
If you would like to give Andrew some support and encouragement you can find his donation page below.
If you would also like to help the sick, injured and orphaned animals we care for please do get in touch.
