Matt's Waxing
Matt our marvelous Maintenance Man, has volunteered to be waxed to raise money for the work that we do. Rescuing and rehabilitating sick, injured and abandoned animals.

Matt has been in integral part of our team for over 6 year now and although we don't often get to talk about the work that he does - when we think back to how things were before Matt started working for us, it really is incredible how he has made the Animal Carers job easier. Being able to look after animals in a clean, safe environment, with properly working equipment is invaluable and Matt is of the opinion that prevention is better than cure - meaning jobs are often done before we even realise they needed doing.
Please support Matt with his fundraising idea (yep, he suggested it, because he knows how hard fundraising can be for us) and donate as generously as you can. Waxing is not something Matt does routinely and he's not really looking forwards to the finished result or the pain!
So please help us make this worth Matt's time and pain, which in turn will also help the animals who come through our doors seeking sanctuary from a wide variety of situations.
