Kitting out Tynemouth Seal Hospital!

Howdy - Welcome to my first fundraiser!

As some of you know, I spent last summer volunteering at Tynemouth Aquarium (Formerly Blue Reef Tynemouth) which has a purpose-build Seal Hospital Unit which rescues, rehabilitates and releases Seals in distress, need or illness. The hospital is ran entirely by the dedicated and tireless British Divers Marine Life Rescue volunteers who have still been on duty throughout the pandemic.

Many a time, I glimpsed a few of the volunteers when I was doing the rounds with my window polish and cloths, and they'd give a cheery wave before disappearing through a hidden magic portal to help out another critter in distress, and I got to know all of the Seals housed there until they were ready to go back into the wild.

They are currently in need of quite a few supplies and I thought it would be nice to raise a few quid to chip a few bits off their Amazon Wishlist HERE. The main things are the specialist gloves in different sizes, but there's also a few extra bits they're after!

If you fancy making your own individual gift - go for it! If you just feel like chipping in a few quid, also good! 

Let's get these guys the things they need to continue their work and show a bit love to our ocean critters :D
