German TV channel to feature Nuneaton’s famous furry residents at a wildlife sanctuary

The famous furry residents of Nuneaton Wildlife’s Sanctuary will be broadcast on German national television.

Woody the blind fox has formed the most unusual of best friends – hanging out with Bramble the deer, as well as sharing food with the greyhound Orla at the Oaston Road-based animal shelter.

The fox, who was rescued by the team, is being guided into his home by his two unlikely best friends – and their unusual relationship has caught the attention of German TV producers ProSieben.

In fact, it’s so much the case that crews from German TV production company MEWork will come to town next month to film the trio – as well as the work of Geoff Grewcock, who founded the sanctuary 21 years ago. and his daughter Emma and their team of volunteers.

The sanctuary responds to calls from residents as well as emergency services and has already appeared on several TV shows.

“We have a TV crew from Germany – they’re doing an amazing animal relations series and figured out how Woody gets along with Bramble and the dog,” Emma said.

“So we are going to have an episode filmed for their series. They will look at the animals and their relationship, but also a bit of a fly on the wall of the daily workings of the sanctuary.

“They’re going to go on rescues and releases with us – they’re going to talk to our volunteers.”

“The channel is the same one that makes Germany Has Got Talent and the Voice Germany – it’s a great entertainment channel.

“We’re looking forward to them coming to see what we’re doing here.”

The arrival of the crews comes at a time when the sanctuary is appealing for donations.

The charity, like so many others, has been affected by the pandemic, which has made it difficult to organize fundraising events.
