Trevor Weeks and East Sussex Wildlife Rescue & Ambulance Service (WRAS) are joining the national campaign by British businesses to send Christmas wishes differently this year by giving through Everyclick's Considerate Christmas 2008. Instead of sending traditional paper Christmas cards, Trevor Weeks and East Sussex WRAS will be reducing their environmental impact by sending Christmas greetings online.
Volunteers from a wildlife rescue charity have dealt with mixed emotions this Christmas and seen the happy and sad side of the job covering 24 hours a day over the festive period and into New Year.
East Sussex Wildlife Rescue and Ambulance Service (WRAS) has had volunteers working all over the Christmas and New Year period. Whilst founder Trevor Weeks has taken his first proper week’s holiday in over 15 years, he has left a dedicated team of volunteers behind to cover.
East Sussex Wildlife Rescue and Ambulance Service (WRAS) has joined forces with Studio51.com in order to provide charity Christmas cards in aid of WRAS.
WRAS almost faced closure earlier this year but was saved thanks to the help and support of the local media and members of the public across the county. Now WRAS is looking at ways of bringing money into the organisation and have joined forces with Studio51.com in order to provide Christmas cards.
Moira House School has raised over £400 for East Sussex WRAS at their Christmas Fair this winter. Students at the girls school in Eastbourne raised the money by selling tables at their fair and holding stalls to raise funds for WRAS. The fair included a small orchestra from the school which played Christmas music at the entrance.
