A Boost For The Barn - The Directory Group

A boost for the barn

The Cat & Rabbit Rescue Centre (CRRC), based in Sidlesham, takes in unwanted, abandoned and stray cats, kittens, rabbits and guinea pigs and gives them a good quality of life, until it is possible to find them a forever home.

Celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, the charity is organising an array of fundraising events, but in particular CRRC is focusing on the new Barn Update and Makeover Project (BUMP).  

The charity aims to raise £30,000, to be put towards all aspects of the barn, including an an air source heat pump, better-equipped kitchen, updated electricity and drainage, better storage areas and opening and meshed windows. Further funds are needed for roof work and continued maintenance.

CRRC Fundraising Officer Emma Nicoll commented: “The barn is nearly as old as CRRC and is getting past its best, so we need to do something about it, and this is how BUMP came about. "The essential upgrade to the barn will provide an efficient facility for health checking the animals, and improving their accommodation whilst awaiting that forever home.”
