Hillside Animal Sanctuary , SIB appeal

My other half is a long term supporter of Hillside Animal Sanctuary in Norfolk , who have been busy recently rescuing swans . Does anybody have a suitable small inflatable in half decent condition that they might like to donate or part with at " charitable price " . I wonder if any of our Trade Members might assist . I would be happy to pay for its transport and new oars etc .

please see.... Hillside animal sanctuary



" Keeping Afloat...
We were lucky enough for some time to have the use of an inflatable dinghy like the one pictured, which was perfect for rescuing wildlife in situations such as this. It had been kindly lent to us by a local supporter but, unfortunately, when they moved away, the dinghy went with them.
If anyone should have a similar boat that they are not using and would like to help, we would be very grateful for the use of it. Thank you "

I have a sib almost exactly like that has a slow leak that needs repairing but if it is of use to your charity you are welcome to come and pick it up and take it away.

We're about 1 hour 30 from you and I have a vet student son who might be able to help you make a PR story from it too. Who knows.

I'm very happy to help if you would like it.

Sincere thanks to Portholme who has donated a sib in good condition to the cause ( small air leak , but hopefully we have a repair in hand ) . The sib was collected yesterday and delivered to Hillside , who have two sites , each with a lake . They have also managed to source a second sib so can cover both venues .
I love a happy ending............

Absolute pleasure Bern. I hope it proves useful to the charity and serves the purpose they require it for.
