Well apart form it being incredible creative fun making your own costumes and masks, learning about European folklore and local legends and history, we do it for the critters. Whitby Wildlife Sanctuary is a local charity dear to our hearts because of the sheer dedication and expertise. It’s not just for rescue but also a valued educational resource. Every year the work grows and the need for funding increases. Pictured here is Arya the resident 3 legged fox who has an excellent quality of life with companions. All rescues are treated and released back where possible.
