Every penny counts...
We rescue between 1500 and 2000 wild animals every year, many of which require veterinary attention, as well as care from our wildlife rescue and rehabilitation team. With the cost of living crisis in full swing the cost of many of the basic items and utilities that we rely on to run our wildlife rescue centre have increased significantly, every penny counts towards our wildlife rescue work.
If you are planning to do a sponsored event to fundraise for us, please set up a fundraising page through our JustGiving Page
Donations of Goods
Donations of goods are always welcome, particularly cat and dog food. We also regularly need old towels and newspaper as we use a tremendous amount throughout the year.
A large proportion of our funding comes from our members and friends in one way or another, whether through sponsorship, donations or developing fundraising activities.
When making your Will, you can also choose to leave a gift in your Will to The New Arc. The security a gift in your will offers our charity would allow us to plan ahead and continue to grow our wildlife rescue and rehabilitation centre to cover the high demand for our services.
Why make a Will?
Your Will allows you to appropriate funds to your exact wishes, however, nearly two-thirds of adults have not made a Will. Any gift in your Will is also exempt from Inheritance Tax.
When making a Will you should consult a solicitor. Friends may recommend one or you can check the internet. The services of a solicitor help ensure your wishes are carried out according to your wishes. Check the fee – it will probably be less than you expected.
