Charity ferrets out a 500 prize
13th June 2018

Staffordshire-based Chase Ferret Rescue has won £500 worth of Alpha Feeds’ premium ferret food in a competition launched in the spring on social media. 
 
The charity was founded in 2000 by Angela and Christopher Taylor to help ferrets in need as well as to offer boarding services. Angela has been keeping ferrets since 1998 with the guidance of her father, who at the time had been keeping working ferrets for around 30 years. As time passed by, they found more and more people in their area taking ferrets to them for advice and care, so they decided to open Chase Ferret Rescue.
 
“The £500 worth of ferret food will help the rescue centre so much, more than most would imagine,” she said. “The money we will save by not having to buy any ferret food for a period of time will help us save for a new run and then eventually a new shed for our ferrets. These items can be very expensive, and as we are a charity having the spare funds for these items is very rare.”
 
Dave Tinker, national sales Manager for Nottinghamshire-based Alpha Feeds, said: “We are very pleased to be able to help an organisation such as Chase Ferret Rescue. We recognise the incredible work they do for ferrets in their area and understand that finding funds for improvements in order for them to maintain the high level of work they do is often quite hard for a charity. The sponsorship we have awarded will hopefully go a long way to help with that.”
