RSPCA Wildlife Centre in East Winch open day this Sunday

The RSPCA Wildlife Centre in East Winch is set to open its doors to the public for a special event on Sunday.

From 10am to 4pm, visitors will have a rare chance to see behind the scenes at the wildlife hospital, speak with staff and take a sneaky peek at some of the animals.

The centre used to hold an open day once every two years, but has not hosted one since 2017 due to the pandemic, so this really is a rare opportunity for visitors to see and learn more about what happens inside a busy working RSPCA wildlife hospital.

There are currently 300 animals being cared for at the centre including seals, owls, hedgehogs, ducklings and fledgling garden birds.

Last year the centre dealt with just under 3,000 animal admissions.

As well as the chance to find out more about what goes on behind the scenes there will also be 50 stalls including hot food, produce and local crafts - there will also be raffles, tombolas, games, demonstrations and much more. Refreshments will be available.

RSPCA Centre manager Evangelos Achilleos said: “We are really excited to be hosting our first open day for quite some time.

“During the event visitors will have the opportunity to see what goes on behind certain parts of the hospital doors and meet with our vets and staff and find out about the variety of rehabilitation work we do for the wildlife in our care.”
