Wildlife Group Overwhelmed by Volunteer Response

Trevor Weeks, founder of East Sussex Wildlife Rescue and Ambulance Service (WRAS) was overwhelmed by the number of volunteers which have offered their time and help at the new Horsebridge Casualty Care Unit.

"I was expecting no more than 20 people to turn up and I could not believe that people just kept coming through the door," said Trevor, " it got to the point that people had to stand which is brilliant."

There was a wide range of people present from 16 year olds up to elderly people too all interested in seeing if they could help out with feeding and cleaning of the casualties.

WRAS’s Horsebridge CCU manager Alec Anscombe along with Trevor Weeks now have the task of going through all the offers of help and working out a rota for people helping and seeing where people can help out.

Trevor said, "we are only a small charity and are volunteers ourselves so I have asked everyone to be patient with us as we sort out the details and contact everyone back. We are still in need of people volunteering to help out with fundraising as we still need at least another £9,000 to finish off the unit and raise funds to help pay for the on going costs of running the unit too."
