BKP Chosen Charities

Brent Lodge Bird & Wildlife Trust - Chichester

Brent Lodge Bird & Wildlife Trust is a wildlife hospital based in West Sussex. They have been treating and rehabilitating injured, sick and orphaned wildlife for over 40 years.

BKP care deeply about the environment, and we were delighted to present Brent Lodge with a cheque for £500, raised by staff members at our Christmas Fundraiser. This money will help fund part of the new Hedgehog garden, which has been built to aid the re-habilitation of hoggy hospital residences; helping them get back to their natural habitat.

Look out for the BKP themed hedgehog house on your next visit to the hospital! You can find out more about the charity here: https://www.brentlodge.org/
