We are really grateful to the following organisations who have very kindly helped support our work. If your company or organisation would like to support WRAS in any way, please get in touch via email.
International Animal Rescue
International Animal Rescue saves animals from suffering around the world. Their work includes cutting free and caring for dancing bears in India, rescuing primates from captivity in Indonesia and sterilising and vaccinating stray dogs and cats in developing countries. Wherever possible they return rescued animals to their natural environment but we also provide a permanent home for animals that can no longer survive in the wild.
International Animal Rescue sponsors three quarters of the salary of Trevor Weeks at WRAS and have offered valuable support and advice over the years.
International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW)
Founded in 1969, the International Fund for Animal Welfare saves individual animals, animal populations and habitats all over the world. With projects in more than 40 countries, IFAW provides hands-on assistance to animals in need, whether it's dogs and cats, wildlife and livestock, or rescuing animals in the wake of disasters. IFAW also advocate saving populations from cruelty and depletion, such as their campaign to end commercial whaling and seal hunts.
In 2010 WRAS picked up an Animal Action Award from IFAW at the House of Lords. IFAW have helped fund a number of items of rescue equipment.
Care for the Wild International
Care for the Wild International is a charity dedicated to the protection of wildlife in the UK and around the globe and have been around for 30 years. They run, work with, and support a range of projects around the world, and help animals from hedgehogs in Horsham to tigers in Thailand! They also raise awareness of the key issues impacting on animals – this includes the horrific poaching of elephants and rhinos, the badger cull in the UK and the way animals are exploited by the tourist industry.
Care for the Wild have being making small donations to WRAS since the late 1990s to buy various pieces of equipment from helping to purchase an ambulance to buying a medicine fridge.
Heathfield Sainsbury's has chosen East Sussex WRAS as its charity of the year raising funds over 12 months until the summer 2015. WRAS’s Trevor Weeks is working closely with the store and over the 12 months, various events will be held at the store to raise both awareness and funds.
The store aims to raise enough money to help sponsor the running costs of WRAS’s new Educational Trailer.
The Royal Hotel is located at 8-9 Marine Parade, Eastbourne, East Sussex and every year we received a donation of £1 for every room booking received. They have been donating every year since 2010 and have provided valuable support to WRAS and its casualties. As well as being "Pet Friendly" they are the only certified eco-friendly guest accommodation in Eastbourne and as such they are refreshingly different. Their kitchen is vegetarian and they offer fresh, homemade and high quality breakfasts to their guests. They happily cater for vegans or those with special diets.
Magpie is the brainchild of designer Nicky Sloan and was created in 2011 to cater to a gap Nicky had spotted in the homewares market. Since its launch, Magpie has grown steadily, both in the design ranges it offers and the customers stocking it. Available from over 1000 stores throughout the UK including esteemed High street names such as Oliva Bonas, Selfridges, Harrods, Lakeland, House of Fraser along with hundreds of independent shops, and boasting over 500 unique products, Magpie has built a solid foundation to date and has ambitious plans for the future. After attending events like Vegfest Magpie donates the profit to worthy charities and East Sussex WRAS is one of them receiving £500 at a time after such events.
