SLM Toyota Uckfield has presented Raystede Centre for Animal Welfare with a cheque for £1,150.
The money will go towards supporting long-term foster care at Raystede and has been donated through the company’s community grant scheme.
It will help with recruiting, retaining, and assessing potential foster families and provide all the necessary veterinary needs and supplies for animals in their care.
This is the start of a fund-raising and working relationship between SLM Toyota and Raystede and the SLM is hoping to continue raising money for the cause.
A company spokesperson said: “Everyone at SLM Toyota Uckfield is extremely proud to be able to give back to the local community and see first hand how the money is being spent and benefitting the lives of many animals.”
Raystede Centre for Animal Welfare rescues, rehomes and provides sanctuary for more than 2000 unwanted and abandoned animals each year. Raystede have been caring for animals for over 60 years but are always looking to the future, improving services and facilities as funding permits.
The long-term foster care of animals across Sussex and Kent, is an important aspect of the organisation’s work, providing safe and loving environments until they can be returned to their owners.
