Supporting Brinsley Animal Rescue

Proceeds from this year's Compassionate Derby event will be going to our local animal sanctuary Brinsley Animal Rescue.

The incredible people at Brinsley Animal Rescue work tirelessly to help rescue and rehabilitate injured wildlife and rehome unwanted pets and animals used by the farming industry, such as chickens, sheep and pigs. The sanctuary is run by volunteers and receives no financial support other than donations from the public.
