WILDLIFE centre Brent Lodge managed to raise around £6,500 at its Spring to Life open weekend.
The public were welcomed to the Sidlesham centre on Saturday and Sunday, and Emma Pink, manager at Brent Lodge Bird and Wildlife Trust, said it was a great success.
“It was absolutely brilliant,” she said.
“I think after costs we raised £6,500. The sunshine helped!”
She said there were birds of prey shows, craft stalls, refreshments, and although the baby badger and fox cubs were not on show, visitors could see pictures of them and catch a glimpse.
“We don’t want them to become tame,” said Emma.
She said the money from the day will go directly to the care of the animals.
The centre takes in injured birds and mammals and rehabilitates them so they can go back into the wild. The trust relies on its charity days to bring in the funds to run the centre.
The next event will be their August Summer Fayre.
