Sick and orphaned wild animals, being looked after at the London Wildcare Centre, attracted dozens of people to the organisation's open day on Sunday (August 24).

The pens, or wards, in the grounds of the Beddington Park hospital were open to view so visitors could see the work of trained staff and volunteers first hand.

All money raised will go towards supporting the hospital, which relies on public donations.

The centre cares for wild animals, including foxes, badgers, deer, squirrels and hedgehogs, found across Croydon and the surrounding area. For assistance with any wildlife casualty call the hospital on 020 8647 6230.
