This morning we heard the news that local organisation, Brockswood had been victims of a vicious arson attack.
Unfortunately, they have been unable to open today as they were having to put all efforts into dealing with the aftermath of the attack. As you can imagine the staff are absolutely devastated to of been targeted and are now left to pick up the pieces. This is now going to take a significant amount of time to fix, and large sums of money that they don’t really have, as there's several thousand pounds worth of damage. Staff have said they would much rather be spending money on their animals and not having to rectify thoughtless vandalism.
Brockswood is a non-profit making company; all their profits are used to care for rescued animals and to maintain and improve the site, as well as conservation of the site to provide a haven for British Wildlife.
Earlier on today Stephanie Jones from Fixed Wheel Brewery visited manager Neil at the Sanctuary to offer support.
She helped set up this fundraising page and the brewery have also dedicated a special ale, money sold from casks to their customers will be donated direct to Brockswood Sanctuary.
