SECRET World Wildlife Rescue looks set to play a bigger role in UK wildlife preservation in the New Year.

The East Huntspill charity has joined with similar organisations around the country to form the group A Voice 4 Wildlife so that it can share information and speak as one on matters of importance in wildlife preservation.

Secret World will shortly be doubling the barn storage space at its centre in order to receive bulk quantities of goods and supplies from donor companies to hand-out to other members.

Secret World founder Pauline Kidner said: “It’s often difficult for major suppliers to think in terms of giving small quantities of goods to individual charities, so with our new storage facility we will be able to receive bulk donations and then share them out for the benefit of all.

“The new storage service is just the latest example of the on-going initiatives being taken by Secret World to further the preservation cause around the country.”

Pauline said the charity was playing a growing role in badger protection and now has two members of staff qualified to provide inoculation programmes for farmers.

Secret World’s eleventh annual ball at The Webbington Hotel has just boosted the funds by about £6,000 but Pauline said it looked as if 2012 was going to be a year of uphill struggle on the fundraising front for all charities.

Pauline said: “’Don’t give up just go on giving a little,’ is our message.”
