A BROMSGROVE animal sanctuary which is home to more than 350 rescue animals needs help from the community to secure its future.

And the Hillfields Animal Sanctuary, in Greenhill, Blackwell, has organised a special open day for residents between 1pm and 4pm tomorrow (Saturday) in the hope people will go along to show their support of the cause.

The rescue site founded over 34 years ago by Lyn Tudor is home to a selection of rescued horses, donkeys, goats, pigs, sheep, ducks, chickens, cats and dogs and completely relies on public donations.

Due to the damage caused to a number of sheds and fences from the recent extreme weather, Lyn and her daughter Charlotte have been trying desperately to raise funds to fix the site.

The duo are also in need of financial help to buy food and hay for the animals because of some recent very high vet bills.

In their fund-raising mission the pair have been applying to become a registered charity which will hopefully secure the sanctuary’s future but they need the help of residents to make this dream a reality.

Lyn has made plans to install two recycling and donation containers near the entrance of the site - one for old clothes, paired shoes, handbags and books and the other for items of animal food for the sanctuary’s use.

Donations from the first box will go towards helping clothe people in developing countries, reduce environmental damages and raise money for the sanctuary.

Plans for a supermarket donation point somewhere in Bromsgrove have also been made.

Lyn said she would like to thank people who had already kindly donated money and animal food as it had helped her immensely - she was very grateful for the kindness people had shown her and the animals in their time in need. She looks forward to meeting supporters on Saturday.
