Donations & Membership
WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT TO SURVIVE – PLEASE HELP
TO DONATE CLICK HERE
This year has been probably the most difficult in our 36-year history, financially at least.
Most of our meagre ‘back-up’ funds have been used up because we have not been able to
fundraise for the past 6 months.
Coupled with this, 2020 has been our busiest year so far, with casualty numbers exceeding
those treated in the same period last year and therefore our expenditure has increased as well.
Now we seem to be entering the second wave of the pandemic, Vale’s future is particularly uncertain
and, despite the fantastic response that we received from our members and supporters earlier in the year,
we cannot sustain this continued lack of regular funding.
I have to admit to being very worried about the charity’s future.
There are very few large wildlife hospitals in the UK and to lose Vale would be a massive blow to the
UK’s sick and injured wildlife, not to mention the loss of over 25 jobs.
PLEASE HELP US TO CONTINUE HELPING BRITAIN’S WILDLIFE
We are only able to continue the work that we do with the help of public support. We do not receive any funding towards the £40,000 monthly running costs so donations are a vital form of income for the charity. Please click the ‘Donate’ button if you would like to give an immediate single donation or to set up a regular direct debit (through Charities Aid Foundation).
If you are a UK taxpayer, don’t forget to fill in a Gift Aid declaration which will enable us to claim a further 25p in every £1 given (follow the link at the bottom of this page).
Becoming a Member of Vale Wildlife Hospital and Rehabilitation Centre keeps you up-to-date with what is going on in the hospital, the casualties undergoing treatment and the stories of some of the rescues we have been involved with. Members receive regular Newsletters full of information about the casualties coming into the Hospital, articles on various wildlife species, details of upcoming fundraising events plus much more.
As a paid-up member you are also able to have a ‘behind the scenes’ look at what goes on within the hospital (by arrangement). For obvious reasons we are not open to the public (this would be extremely detrimental to the well-being of the wild animals in our care) so this is the only opportunity, apart from our occasional Open Days, to see what actually goes on on a day-to-day basis, watch our staff, vet and volunteers at work and see the hundreds of animals that are receiving care.
Our Members are vital to us, giving us a regular income and helping to fund all the work that we do at Vale.
Paying your subscription by direct debit or standing order also saves us precious funds, as does having your Newsletters delivered by email rather than by snail mail.
Membership costs just £20 per year (£12.50 for Senior Citizens) Lifetime Membership is £250.00.
