A widely loved animal rescue charity is “forever grateful” after having a huge funding boost from a Worcestershire law firm.  

Wythall Animal Sanctuary, which has been looking after animals for more than 50 years, received a much needed £1,000 from the Bromsgrove branch of mfg Solicitors to support its work.

The organisation was voted the Bromsgrove office’s chosen charity with staff donating the money to help cover rising costs including vet bills.

Senior associate and head of mfg’s CSR Committee, Sharon Lerry, said: “The team at Wythall Animal Sanctuary are renowned for their amazing work having looked after thousands of animals over the past 50 years.

“It is also somewhere many of our team have visited over the years, so it came out as a clear winner in the vote with many of our staff saying they felt animal charities are often forgotten.

“We know the money will be put to great use and help the team meet rising costs so they can continue with the wonderful work they do with the animals.”

Fundraising manager at Wythall Animal Sanctuary, Danni Howard, said: “We are forever grateful to Sharon and the caring team at mfg Solicitors for their donation which is going to help so much, especially at a time when all charities are under such financial pressure.”
