Pauline Kidner - Founder
Wildlife hospital

OAT were approached by a charitable organisation called Secret World Wildlife Rescue who ar based in Highbridge, Somerset. They rescue and rehabilitate wildlife in the UK and were looking for funding to expand their rehab facility and specifically to build a new state of the art hospital unit. 


At the time we were unable to visit the project as we were in the middle of Covid related lockdown, however, as soon as restrictions were lifted, we took a drive to Somerset and the rest, as they say, is history. 


On witnessing the passion and dedication of founder Pauline Kidner and her team, we agreed to support their expansion plans.  The new facility opened its doors in October 2021.
