A mountain of animal feed has recently been donated to Ferne Animal Sanctuary. Helen Lacey, MD at Red Berry Recruitment, together with her staff in Shepton Mallett, Yeovil, Bridgwater and Taunton, decided to help the Sanctuary by asking all their contacts to donate whatever they could.
At a regional WIBN (Women in Business Networking) South West meeting, Helen also asked the members from Yeovil, Exeter and Taunton to help.
Jenny Wheadon, Head of External Funding at the Sanctuary in Wambrook, near Chard, Somerset said: “I was astounded when Gary Govier from Centaur Supplies turned up on site in his van with this huge amount of feed for the animals.
“Helen, her staff at Red Berry Recruitment and all the WIBN South West members have done a marvellous job helping us. They have all been very generous donating feed and toys. Our sincerest thanks go to everyone involved.”
Helen Lacey said: “Red Berry Recruitment was delighted to feature Ferne Animal Sanctuary as one of our Christmas Charities last year. Our staff, clients and members of the public were amazing in their response to our request for donated items. Christmas is such a special time and we feel it is our duty and responsibility to spread a little of the goodwill spirit.”
Ferne Animal Sanctuary is a registered Charity open to the public all year round, except Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. They rely solely on donations.
