Events raising cash for Hemsby wildlife rescue centre, Foxy Lodge
A RAFT of events are being staged to help a Hemsby wildlife rescue centre to stay open and carry on caring for the tide of orphaned or injured animals that flows through its doors.
Foxy Lodge currently has 90 animals including a crop of baby hedgehogs but is struggling to meet the �5,000 annual running costs.
Now Joan Naylor and her sister Ann have stepped in with a three month fundraising campaign to raise the money that will allow the owners to get on with the life-saving work they do best.
Joan said: “They are really struggling for cash at present as they have over 90 beasties in needing round the clock care. We desperately don’t want to lose them from our village as they are the only people locally who take wildlife.”
Events are as follows:
Prize bingo, Hemsby Village Hall, Friday, August 10, doors open 6.30pm eyes down 7.30pm. Prizes, raffle, tombola, refreshments, cake stall, bar open.
