We have seen an increase in emergency phone calls and we are starting to struggle to get to all the animals in need of our help. Being part of our transport team means that you are willing to collect animals and birds and then bring them to us at the Sanctuary.
If you are interested in joining this team, you will have to complete and pass a basic wildlife training course held by one of the members of the Sanctuary team. This is to give you the tools needed to assess the condition of the animal or bird before taking it to the Sanctuary.
 
If you are interested please email us on hasshoponline@gmail.com

There are almost no limits to what you can do to help us. If you have an idea or a question, please use the contact form on this page and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Meanwhile, here are a few suggestions from us: 

Volunteer in one of our shops

We are always looking for more people to join us in our two shops. Help sort donations, talk to customers or serve at the till; not only will you help us but it is also a great way to get experience.

Become an event volunteer

Hallswood tries to not only attend as many events we can but also arrange our own events. The events could be anything from a day at the market stall in the city or a small educational event on how to garden for wildlife to help out at our Christmas event; a day that involves the help of over 40 volunteers.

Volunteer at the Sanctuary

To join our volunteer group at the Sanctuary you will have to start out as an event or shop volunteer.

No time but still want to help?

Why not appeal to your friends, family and neighbours for donations for our shops? Any fabric, even stained or ripped, helps us. Anything that we cannot sell is sold as rags and to show how important rags are; well, they pretty much pay our shop rents. Nothing too small, it all adds up!

No time but a bit of money?

We are always in need of good quality hay and straw, cat food (tinned and biscuits), good quality wood flakes for bedding, towels, flat newspapers, blankets etc.

Friends of Hallswood

With more and more volunteers helping us we can now arrange more events than ever. No matter if is is a jumble sale, collection day, haymarket stall or carboot; It is important to us that our staff and volunteers are easy to spot as many of these events are so well attended it is hard to tell customer from helpers 😀

As always, cost is so important to us and we want to make sure that the money you guys donate goes to the animals, not promotional stuff or admin. So when Calder Designs  very kindly offered to print us some tabards at cost we could not have been happier!
Thank you so much!
