Norfolk wildlife hospital gives Johnsons Apparelmaster ‘seal of approval’

The Johnsons Apparelmaster plant in Newmarket has donated 1,000 towels to help poorly animals at the RSPCA Norfolk Wildlife Hospital. 

A customer wanted to change their entire stock of towels and Apparelmaster Transport Manager for Letchworth and Fakenham, Nigel Roberts, didn’t want to see them go to waste if there was a chance that they could be recycled. Nigel had heard the centre appealing on the local radio for support, so had asked the customer if they would be happy for their towels to be given to the RSPCA.

"We think that donating is a much nicer way to recycle the towels" said Andy Tyler-Smith, Area Operations Manager for Johnsons Apparelmaster. "When Nigel called and mentioned that he’d heard an appeal, we knew we could help."

Formerly known as the RSPCA East Winch Wildlife Centre, the facility opened in 1988 as a unit to treat sick and injured seals after a virus outbreak. The RSPCA continued to treat seals and started to take in other wildlife including mammals, birds and occasionally amphibians and reptiles.

Towels, blankets and sheets are always needed at the centre to provide comfort and warmth to the animals.

The Johnsons Apparelmaster Newmarket plant also donates towels to wildlife rescue centre Foxy Lodge in Hemsby.
