Rescue centre facing money woes

An animal sanctuary in Nottinghamshire could be forced to close due to a lack of donations, organisers have said.

The Terry Marsh Wildlife Rescue Centre in Mansfield only has funding for a few more weeks.

The sanctuary provides emergency and long term care for hundreds of animals and birds.

Mr Marsh, who runs the centre, said: "We have got to try and arrange for between 4,000 and 6,000 in the next three or four weeks just to keep going.

"Because of the credit crunch, obviously nobody's donating large amounts. Any money helps."

The centre provided care for three ducklings and their mother after they were rescued from the top of the QMC hospital in Nottingham in 2006.

It also took another eight ducks that were rescued from the roof of the John Lewis store in the city at the same time.
