WRAS would like to issue this statement in respect of the recent media reports on Hastings Birds Rescue and the activities of Jackie Cullen. WRAS would like to confirm that we are not associated with, do not send casualties to, nor advise people to use Hastings Bird Rescue nor Jackie Cullen. She is not funded by, nor working with East Sussex WRAS. WRAS was under the impression she had not been rescuing wildlife for many years. Over 10 years ago WRAS attempted to help Miss Cullen to improve her facilities but WRAS has not been involved with her since.
