We have lots of fundraising events for the hospital throughout the year, and running a tombola at these events is a great way for us to raise funds.
However, we need tombola prizes!
So if you have any items that you could let us have as prizes for our tombolas we’d be very grateful.
We can make use of all sorts of nick-naks … toiletries, ornaments, teddies, books, bottles, kiddies bits, tins, non-perishable foods, jewellery, unwanted gifts, etc.
So long as it’s in “as new” condition, we can make use of it.
If you have any items that you think we can use as tombola prizes, please just drop them in to Brent Lodge.
We are currently seeing a worrying number of cases of wildlife crime being mentioned in the news and on social media.
Recent cases include deliberate cruelty to a baby swan, and the destruction of nests with baby birds by builders and tree-fellers.
Wildlife crime includes the persecution of protected native species of flora and fauna, the illegal snaring, trapping or killing of protected mammals, damage to the geophysical features of protected land, and the international trade in endangered species.
The police have a number of Wildlife Crime Officers (WCOs) working across the country, all of whom perform the role alongside their day-to-day policing duties.
They rely on the assistance of the public to enable them to detect offences and prosecute offenders. Please report things that make you suspicious. Posting details on social media may make you feel better, but if you report an incident to the police, then something will be done about it.
The Police Wildlife Crime teams would love to hear from anyone who has any information about wildlife criminality. Please contact them on 101.
If a crime is currently taking place, do not put yourself in danger … always dial 999 immediately.
