For 2018, we are proud to be supporting the Vale Wildlife Hospital!
Established in 1984, the Vale Wildlife Hospital started off in one person’s back garden as a rescue for wildlife casualties. Over the space of five years this gradually grew until attaining charitable status in 1990.
In 1992 the charity moved to a dedicated site in Beckford where they have a purpose built hospital dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of wildlife. Over the past twenty years, they have continued to grow, now treating over 4,000 sick, injured and orphaned animals every year.
The running costs for the hospital are high though, and they rely on the support of donations, membership subscriptions and sponsorships to keep them going!
Some of the incredible facilities that the hospital has are:

As part of our ten year celebration, ConFuzzled was proud to return to the charity that we sponsored back at our very first convention in 2008 – The Badger Trust.
The Badger Trust is the UK’s leading voice for badgers, actively promoting their conservation, welfare and the protection of their setts and habitats. They represent and assist many local badger groups comprising a total of at least 3,000 volunteers and 80 local badger groups, as well as working with the government, vets, welfare groups, police and wider public to fulfill their mission.
At ConFuzzled 2017 we were able to raise an incredible £21,113 for the Badger Trust, which is not only a huge help to badger conservation but also brought total amount that ConFuzzled has donated to charity over the years to over £100,000!

In previous years, we’ve been fortunate enough to work with some amazing charities, and have raised a grand total of £109,860!
This is an fantastic amount that we have been able to donate to good causes, that has only been possible due to the incredible generosity of our attendees!
