The Kit Wilson Trust

The purpose of the Trust is to promote the welfare of animals – To Rescue abandoned, unwanted, ill-treated and neglected animals – To care for these animals and provide them with any necessary veterinary attention until they can be re-homed.  From a modest beginning the Trust has grown, and in 1986 set up its own Animal Rescue Centre at Hadlow Down, near Uckfield, in East Sussex. In addition to the animal rescue and re-homing work, the Trust has become increasingly involved in wildlife rehabilitation, and operates a wildlife emergency help line. Over the years, the Rescue Centre has also become a permanent home to many animals which it is not possible or desirable to re-home: these include horses, donkeys, cats, goats, birds and small rodents.

Kit Wilson Receive £500 From The PPAF

From Wealden Police:
Whilst out on patrol in Uckfield, PCSO Brashill and Duvall stopped by to present The Kit Wilson Trust a cheque for £500 from the Police Property Act Fund.
The Police Property Act Fund (PPAF) is made up of monies received by the police from the sale of found property and from property confiscated by order of court and then sold.
The main aim of the fund is to support local projects undertaken by voluntary/charitable organisations that solely benefit the communities of Sussex; you can find out more and see if you can apply here:
