The team at Woodlands would like to wish all their supporters a very happy and healthy 2020! At the start of a brand new decade the sanctuary’s sights are set on the continued growth of their rescue and rehab centre, to continue helping sick, abandoned and unwanted pets and wildlife. However, alongside this, they are also looking to grow their outreach programme too, which aims to allow people of all ages and from all walks of life to engage with animals and educate them about their health and care.

Bringing a spot of magic to the new year are the newest members of the Woodlands family. The rescue charity has taken in three pygmy goats to live with their existing goats and sheep and supporters of the sanctuary have named the new trio Harry, Ron & Hermione! The team are however hoping that this trio don’t get up to quite the same level of adventures as the famous trio they are named after!

This trio will be taking some of the strain from Bert & Ernie and will be flying out as part of the charity’s education and outreach programme to visit schools, groups and clubs. You will also have the opportunity to support these newest residents by simply visit Woodlands’ website for more details on sponsoring their goats. https://www.woodlandsanimalsanctuary.org.uk/sponsorship/ The charity is also still running their ‘Buy A Bale’ Scheme, https://www.woodlandsanimalsanctuary.org.uk/getinvolved/buyabale/ which allows you to donate one of three fixed amounts which will go towards buying bedding and feed for those animals on the stable yard; pony’s, donkeys, rabbits, sheep and of course the goats!

Keep a look out for the upcoming diary of events Woodlands will be holding this year, but a date for your diary is their annual spring ball – this year also marking the charity’s 15th Birthday! So why not celebrate in style with them at the signature Bliss Hotel in Southport, whilst helping to raise funds towards their work. Tickets are available now by calling the team on 01704 823293 and are £39.50 which includes a 3 course meal, live band & DJ.
