Jewson helps flooded wildlife sanctuary

The Nuneaton Wildlife Sanctuary rescues sick, injured, abandoned birds and animals using only donations. Warwick council had been providing sandbags but due to high demand with the chaotic weather, the owner and staff at the Sanctuary were still struggling to keep the animals protected, leaving them on the ground vulnerable to danger.

Simon Procter, branch manager at the Bedworth branch donated ten 25kg bags of sand which were collected by the Sanctuary on Thursday 13th February.

He said: “We saw this donation as a great way of helping a worthy cause, the flooding has been a nightmare for a lot of people and you can feel so helpless when there are animals involved.”
