At Batcheller Monkhouse we aim to support local organisations where we can. To kick off the New Year, Batcheller Monkhouse made a generous donation to support Raystede, a local animal charity who rehome dogs, cats and small animals in Sussex.

As sponsors of Raystede, staff members from Batcheller Monkhouse were invited on a tour around the site, learning about its history and meeting some of the animals. Additionally, BM staff volunteered in the Raystede Crematorium weeding and clearing areas where beloved pets are remembered.

Despite the chilly February weather, it was a productive and rewarding afternoon. Everyone at Raystede was incredibly welcoming and we look forward to continuing to support the charity where we can.

If you are in the area, Raystede is free to visit. A fantastic day for all the family to enjoy the outdoors and learn about different animals. To keep the centre running, over £5,000 needs to be raised per day. If you would like to support a local animal charity, or you are looking for a new furry member to join your family please visit Raystede. Full details here:
