Weed Whacking at The Wildheart Animal Sanctuary

Our summer season is already up on us but with the recent wet weather being followed by a week of glorious sunshine the dreaded weeds are starting to sprout up all over our lovely wildlife sanctuary.

So we are looking for a small green army of volunteers to come in this weekend to whack the weeds, tidy up the borders and get us looking like a good old bobby dazzler once again! Our rescued animals will certainly appreciate it and we will provide drinks and light refreshments from our café to keep you nourished and refreshed.

What an opportunity to see lions, tigers, lemurs, monkeys and more while you help our sanctuary get back to looking spick and span again.

We are looking for volunteers anytime from 9am on Saturday or Sunday. We have a limited amount of weed whacking kit available but if people could  bring their own that would be hugely appreciated!
