Losing a loved one is one of the most difficult things any of us must deal with. During difficult times, doing something positive can be a big help in coming to terms with a loss.
Giving a gift to charity is a great way to shine a light in the darkness and has the added benefit of honouring the achievements and beliefs of your loved one. If they had a passion for wildlife and nature and wanted to protect it, then a gift to Secret World Wildlife Rescue in their memory would be an ideal way to continue their legacy after they’re gone.

Many people ask for donations instead of flowers at a funeral, as cut flowers fade and die so quickly. Donating to a favourite cause can be of lasting benefit for a charity such as ours. Most funeral directors are happy to arrange such collections and forward the donations onto us.
In the grounds at Secret World Wildlife Rescue we have a special memory walk, where we can plant a hardwood tree, with a memorial plaque beside it, in memory of your loved one.
We can also offer the opportunity to have a memorial bench situated in the grounds. Please get in touch if you would like this so we can talk to you about options and locations.
In our courtyard, we have a special memory board for plaques dedicated to people who, during their lifetime, have shared our love of wildlife.
This a a lovely way to really celebrate the life of someone you have cared deeply about. Through web sites such as Justgiving or Muchloved you can create a lasting tribute, inviting friends and family to contribute photos, videos, and stories to the site as well as being able to fundraise in someone’s memory.
