ANIMAL-LOVERS with time to spare are being invited to find out more about volunteering at Somerset animal rescue charity Secret World Wildlife Rescue.

The East Huntspill centre has seen a record number of sick and injured wildlife pass through its doors in 2015, with more than 1,000 animals needing help in the past month alone.

As a result, Secret World is in urgent need of volunteers to help treat injured wildlife and will host a volunteer recruitment weekend on Saturday and Sunday.

A spokesman for the charity said: “We rely on volunteers to help rescue, rehabilitate and release these wild animals.

“Volunteering offers so many benefits – you can enjoy a unique experience caring for and rehabilitating a whole range of British wildlife.

“We care for birds, foxes, badgers, hedgehogs and more.

“Volunteers are also able to gain employment references and valuable work experience, while meeting people of all ages and backgrounds.”

The volunteer recruitment weekend will take place from 10am-4pm on Saturday and Sunday, at Secret World’s grounds in New Road.

For more information, contact Duncan Cousens on 01278 783 250 or via volunteer@secretworld.org
