The London Wildcare Centre is opening its doors to the public at the end of August.

The centre cares for sick and orphaned wild animals found across Croydon and its surrounding area.

Visitors can see the work of the hospital’s specially trained staff and volunteers first hand at the open day on Sunday, August 24, 11am-4pm.

All the pens in the grounds of Beddington Park, Wallington, will be open to view, including fox, badger, deer, squirrel, hedgehogs, rabbits, birds and waterfowl.

There will also be a variety of stalls, a tombola, gifts and games.

Admission is £3 for adults and £1 for children with discounts on the door for families and OAPs.

All money raised will go towards supporting the hospital, which relies on public donations.

For assistance with any wildlife casualty, or for more details about the open day, call 020 8647 6230.
