A wildlife centre has been gifted three widescreen TVs to enable them to provide a more complete visitor experience.

Earsham Wetland Centre, near Bungay, received the TVs from Hughes Electrical.

Branches from Beccles, Diss and Halesworth donated a TV each which will now be installed in the welcome centre, café and education centre.

Michael Rosier, of Earsham Wetland Centre, said: “It’s great to be supported by such a well-known local company, especially as we are a site that wants to put support for local producers and businesses at the heart of what we do.”

The TVs will be used to show the history of the site from the 1970s to the present day as well as information on new projects and animals being introduced to the centre.

Sam Honeywood, manager of Hughes Electrical Beccles branch, noticed the centre online and enquired how the company could help.

He said: “Obviously a lot of their income is spent on looking after the animals and keeping the Centre going.

“Therefore, we felt a donation of TVs would ensure visitors were getting something new to enable them to get a better feel for what is going on.

“As a company we always like to support local causes wherever possible.”
