There is a crisis facing the wildlife of East Sussex, with rescues closing down, temporarily close or reducing their service thousands of wild animals and bird are at risk of just being put to sleep at veterinary practices because the rescues don't have space to take them all in.
East Sussex WRAS is fighting to expand and grow to deal with the short fall, already taking in cases from Brighton & Hove due to Rogers Wildlife Rescue permanently closing down and from Bexhill & Hastings due to local rescues either temporarily close or looking at closing down.
We need your help to raise enough money to expand and set up a new Casualty Centre.
Over the holiday season between Friday 23rd December 2022 to Tuesday 2nd January 2022 we want you to record a run, walk, cycle, swim or horse ride to help raise money for WRAS! Record it on a fitness, exercise or tracker app on your phone or just take a photo of yourself taking part, and we’ll send you your medal afterwards.
It doesn't matter how far you go, or how fast you do it. We don't mind if you walk, run, swim, or cycle! You are welcome to do it just in your house and garden or even on a treadmill!
There are two levels of entry this year:
Medal Entry: £12.50 to receive a WRAS Ambulance Christmas Medal. Certificate Entry: £8.00 to receive a WRAS Certificate.
(Plus Eventbrite fees)

As this is a special time of year, we have a special bespoke medal being made for each finisher. We will post further details as soon as we are able to!
To get your medal or certificate you will need to send a screen shot of your fitness, exercise or tracker app showing how far you have gone and a photo of you taking part, along with your name, time and distance, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Don't forget to include on the e-mail your name, address, how far you managed to get, and your time taken. We will try to upload as many photos sent to us as possible when sent to us during the event.
Late entries after 12noon on Friday 23rd December 2022 may take longer to send out medals, but entries will still be eligible to take part up till lunch time Monday 2nd January 2023. Enter as normal.
