While monetary gifts are the most direct way of supporting Woodside Sanctuary from an operations point, there are many day to day items that are always needed. We welcome any gift; your kindness will go a long way in assisting us to take care of our residents.

We are in dire need of a Vehicle suitable for transporting our disabled/ wheelchair restricted residents. At present this is particularly difficult and places quite a big challenge on us in terms of transporting our residents to and from the hospital and for outings.
