Secret World Wildlife Rescue will be holding a series of festive events and activities this December to help young and old get into a jolly mood for the holiday season.

With a Santa’s grotto, craft workshops and carol singing, the wildlife rescue charity will be catering to everyone young and old. And the money raised will also ensure the animals in Secret World’s care will get the best Christmas possible.

Samantha Hannay, Head of External Relations at Secret World, said: “We are always trying to find ways to educate the public about the plight of British wildlife. By opening our doors, we can sensitise people to our rescue, rehabilitation and release work.

“We are quite excited about our Christmas programme. We have tried to cater to a wide variety of ages, tastes and interests.”
