We're still collecting donations

On the 18th April 2020 we'd raised £7,607 with 242 supporters in 28 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

New stretch target

We are closed but the overheads remain the same for our animals; food, bedding, medication, vet care, heating, lighting, staff costs, etc.
We know that this is a very difficult time for everyone, but we cannot tell you enough how much your donations mean to us and our animals, our long term future and species survival.

Don't forget to claim your rewards, many of which are great offers with money off!


The global COVID-19 pandemic has created a very uncertain landscape for millions of small British businesses, which is going to make it very challenging for them to survive. The Hemsley Conservation Centre is one of these businesses.

The staff at the centre cannot simply lock the doors and stay at home. The centre is home to almost 70 different species who need around the clock heating, food and care. Before the pandemic the centre relied on food donations from supermarkets as well as purchasing food off the shelf. In the current climate food is now scarce and the donations have dried up. 

Almost all of our species also rely on heat to keep them not only warm in the winter but also alive and with no visitors for the foreseeable future a £1,500 monthly electricity bill eats directly into our already high costs. This is without our other overheads including, specialist feeds, unexpected veterinary bills, and other costs.

The centre is home to a wide range of fascinating species and by supporting us you are contributing directly to the welfare and care of them. In return for your support we can offer you some fantastic items which you can enjoy in the near future!

Thank you for taking the time to read and visit this page and your ongoing support is appreciated by both animals and the dedicated staff.

All the best,

The HCC team
