Rescue centre launches Sophia’s wildlife photography competition

Brave teenager raises £600,000 for treatment but loses cancer battle

A WOODLAND rescue centre has hosted the launch of a junior wildlife photography competition called wlife03, organised by ten-year-old Sophia Dennett.
Sophia, a pupil at St James’ Junior School in Tunbridge Wells, was given a guided tour of Folly Wildlife Rescue’s hospital in Broadwater Forest along with seven other primary school children.
Sophia said: “I wanted to launch the competition somewhere that really cared for wildlife. I had visited a couple of weeks earlier and the tawny owl that had been in the incubator after being hit on the head was now completely well and released back into the wild.”
She added: “I think the way they care for the likes of hedgehogs, badgers and birds there is really great.”
The photography competition is open to all primary school children in Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge and the surrounding areas.
