Story

In the beginning, The Fox Project was a small shed in a small back garden where, if we were hard pressed, two or three fox cubs might be under care. Fast forward 30 years and you find us spread over multiple sites with an annual rescue total of over 1,000 foxes.

Currently, our operation revolves around our hospital unit at Broadwater Forest Wildlife Hospital near Tunbridge Wells and our cub unit at Pembury. Both facilities work well, but capacity is reaching its limit, especially at the cub unit where fifty cubs in a facility designed to hold thirty meant we almost burst at the seams in 2019. Our hospital unit also bulged scarily, being at full capacity for far longer than was comfortable. Building our own hospital would allow us to expand and bring together both units with a small office, overnight staff quarters, storage space and a workshop.

Whilst the Hospital Project is very exciting and vital to our future, we know it will be a long old slog and have no illusions that some of us will have more grey hair at the end than we started out with! Just finding a place to call home will be the first hurdle.

The Fox Project has stood the test of time, highs and lows, ups and downs and lots of bumps in the road. But we're still here and we're still growing. While our pot of savings the proceeds of a couple of significant legacies gives us a good start, it is, by no means, sufficient to complete our project. So we're starting here!

We hope you'll feel able to support this project. All donations made through this Just Giving appeal will be designated specifically for our hospital fund and don't forget, if you're a UK taxpayer, to sign up for Gift Aid. That way, we can claim a further 25% of your donation from the government and that brings us 25% nearer to our ambitions.
