To celebrate our 40th Anniversary Year the Jean Sainsbury Animal Welfare Trust has supported charities with over £400,000 of extra funding.
Since January 2023, the Jean Sainsbury Animal Welfare Trust (JSAWT) has given £300k extra in awards to many of the charities it has supported regularly over the last 40 years. Please look at our 40th Anniversary Testimonials to see what support from us has meant to them.
In addition, JSAWT invited a small number of charities it has previously supported to apply for four Special project awards of £25,000 each. Thirty charities responded, with proposals ranging from kennel rebuilds, to solar panel installations, replacement vans and a new x-ray machine.
JSAWT is delighted to announce the recipients of the Special Awards:
Gloucestershire based Wild Hogs Hedgehog Rescue, for new hutches and staff training;
Nottinghamshire based Doris Banham Dog Rescue, for new eco-friendly kennels;
Lancashire based Woodlands Animal Sanctuary, for an upgrade to their electricity supply;
WECare Worldwide, for two new vehicles to carry out mobile neutering and vaccinations in Sri Lanka.
Trustees are confident the projects proposed by these winners will have a significant impact on both the way in which the charities operate and the welfare of animals under their care.
