To all our friends and supporters
Concern is being expressed regarding recent decisions. As most of you are aware the Charity has been in danger of closure due to financial and staffing difficulties taking place. In order to save the Charity a total restructure is underway resulting in the loss of some roles, including those previously held by Serena Stevens and Katia Whitfield – their determination and perseverance in establishing the charity will never be forgotten.
However, the original ethos of the Charity has had to move into the 21st century which means complying with many rules and regulations involving personnel, safeguarding, data protection, modified procedures and new skills.
The adoption of new working practices/structures supported by other major organisations and the continual dedication of our volunteers will enable the Charity to flourish in the future.
We would like to extend heartfelt thanks to all those who are continuing to support the Charity at this difficult time.
Please remember all of this is based on our main focus – the care and protection of wildlife.
The Trustees, Oak & Furrows
