A leading wildlife rescue charity has welcomed its second ever chief executive this month after the founder stepped down.

David Foulds, originally from Derby, has taken over the leadership of Secret World Wildlife Rescue in East Huntspill from founder Pauline Kidner, who established the charity 25 years ago.

The charity provides a 24/7 rescue service which cares for sick, injured and orphaned wildlife. It currently takes in more than 5,000 animals a year.

Mr Foulds praised his predecessor, and said: “I feel proud to have been entrusted with the next phase of development for this charity.

“We will be making some exciting changes to reach even more people and inspire them to care for wildlife.”

Mr Foulds says he is keen to welcome more guests to the charity to raise awareness and aims to open its visitor centre to the public daily throughout the summer, starting later this month.
