AN ANIMAL charity near Highbridge has been given a cash boost from an environmental trust.

Secret World Wildlife Rescue Centre received £20,000 from Viridor Waste Management to spend on a new sewerage system for their base in East Huntspill.

Centre founder, Pauline Kidner, said: "We desperately need a new sewage treatment plant here. Without this essential infrastructure project it will be impossible for us to develop the centre, provide animal welfare facilities and continue to represent ourselves as a centre of best practise."

Viridor Credits Somerset is an environmental trust set up by Viridor Waste Management to administer cash raised by the Government's landfill tax in Somerset. There is a levy of £24 for every tonne of waste buried in the ground and part of the money is used to help Somerset community projects.
