DickiesStore were recently approached by the Nuneaton and Warwickshire Wildlife Sanctuary, who were desperately in need of some hi vis jackets for their staff. These hi vis items are vital when out on a rescue, as they help keep the workers safe and visible. DickiesStore donated 10 high visibility jackets to the sanctuary, in support of the organisation and the valuable work that they do.
The Nuneaton and Warwickshire wildlife sanctuary was opened in February 2001, and since then has cared for over 25,000 wild and domestic animals and birds. According to Jude Amos, fundraiser for the sanctuary, domestic animals are all rehomed and over 65% of wild animals have been put back into the wild.
At the moment the sanctuary is home to roe deer, foxes, ducks, turkey, goose, owls, parrots, finches and other birds, rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, rats, dogs, hedgehog, snakes, lizards, tortoises, and spiders.
The Nuneaton and Warwickshire Wildlife Sanctuary is entirely self-funding, and relies totally on donations. It costs on average £360 per week to keep the sanctuary open, and a further £120 per week on food and bedding for the animals in their care. Please feel free to donate here, and help them continue their great work in rescuing and rehabilitating Britain’s wildlife.
