An East Huntspill animal charity has launched a new initiative to raise more money.
Secret World Wildlife Rescue is starting a friendship circle to help it meet the costs of caring for more than 5,000 animals a year.
The circle will help keep supporters better informed about the charity’s activities in return for financial support.
Founder Pauline Kidner said: “Over a quarter of a century ago, Secret World was a tourist attraction as well as a wildlife hospital.
“Our frequent open days provided a strong source of revenue for the charity.
“Today, with the ever-increasing numbers of wildlife casualties arriving at our centre, we are not in the position to open our doors to the public as regularly.
“Unfortunately, this has impacted our ability to raise funds.”
