Bert and Ernie

The fundraising team from Woodlands Animal Sanctuary, including Bert and Ernie, will be at the Botanic Gardens Family Fun Day in Churchtown in Southport this Father’s Day, Sunday 18th June 2023. 

Visitors will be able to enjoy a great day out for all the family between 10am and 4pm with dancing, rides, music, attractions and of course, food, drink, stalls and much more.  

It is free entry, but some of the attractions are chargeable, so remember to bring some cash for spending, and 20p for the toilets.  

There is limited parking on the street and car park to the rear.

Bert and Ernie, two of the animal charity’s goats, are seasoned professionals when it comes to meeting people and they know just how to search your pockets for any sweet, or savoury treats that may be lurking there!  

Donating towards the work Woodlands Animal Sanctuary does, means you will be directly contributing towards the animal rescue be able to continue to accept cats, from families who find themselves in crisis and are no longer able to keep their beloved kitty, as well as those who have been abandoned, in various states of ill health.  

Funding, their veterinary care, the often specialist food, heating and litter, can cost the charity over £100 per cat, and that is if the cat is in quite good health and can be rehomed in around a month.

As well as the cats and kittens, Woodlands is home to 6 goats, a donkey, 4 ponies and numerous hens and ducks, plus the odd guinea pig every now and again.

As well as opening their doors to animals in need, the team at Woodlands offer volunteering and education opportunities to work with the animals and to reap the benefits working with animals has on both physical and mental health.

Visit their website to see all the wonderful cats they have, who are waiting for their loving forever home.

  1. Hey there! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.
    Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty
    quick. I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to start.
    Do you have any points or suggestions? Thanks
