The Swan Sanctuary

The Swan Sanctuary was founded in the early 1980s by Dorothy Beeson BEM. It is the largest and only completely self-contained swan hospital in the UK. Each year thousands of swans (along with lots of other animals) are given some form of help – from bank side treatment to hospitalisation, often involving major surgery.

The Vintners’ Foundation makes an annual grant to the Sanctuary.
