Secret World Launches Wildlife Christmas Shoebox Appeal

The days are getting shorter, it’s getting colder, and our British wildlife is preparing itself for the winter. Secret World Wildlife Rescue in East Hunstpill, is making an appeal for donations for the animals to see them through the winter months.

Christmas is a time for giving and we don’t want our animals to be forgotten about. It would be wonderful if they were able to enjoy a little treat during the festive season and people can help through our Shoebox Appeal.

We are asking members of the public and schools to get involved and send us shoeboxes filled with goodies that will help us look after the wild animals in our care throughout the winter.
