Wow how time flies. 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 visitors to the site is “how else could I help”?
We have two shops, one in Selsey, Havant and another new opened up in Worthing. 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.
Would you like to volunteer your services as an animal ambulance for your area?
As and when we need someone to transport a sick or injured animal to Brent Lodge, we will query our database of registered drivers and contact the nearest available volunteer to the patient. There is no commitment! We gratefully accept your offer to help if you are available at the time of asking. If you’re not available when called upon, that’s absolutely fine – we will try to contact another driver. It’s important to get as many volunteer drivers into our database as possible, so if you have family, friends, or neighbours who may be willing to help out, please do point them in the direction of this page!
