Welcome to the Alexandra Bastedo (Champions) Animal Sanctuary website.  The aims of the sanctuary are to rescue abandoned animals and those in distress, to provide them with care and protection and where possible, to find them a new home where they can be happy, safe and properly cared for.

Our patrons are the actress and animal rights campaigners Virginia McKenna and Joanna Lumley as well as William Gaunt, actor and Alexandra’s colleague from “The Champions”.

In addition Pollyanna Pickering, renowned wild life artist, actor Peter Egan and actress Lorraine Chase.

WIMG_0213e are also honoured to have actress and great friend of Alex’s, Sue Jameson, as our President.

We couldn’t manage without the support of our Patrons, President and our wonderful band of volunteers who turn out whatever the weather to care for the animals.  We are also lucky to have so many supporters and fundraisers who help keep the sanctuary going.

We hope you enjoy your visit here, that you will like the photos of our lovely animals and the work we do for them here at the sanctuary.  You might like to sponsor an animal, raise some funds for us or even become an ABC Friend or Champion.

Please do return to our site often and help us keep Alexandra’s legacy alive.

Thank you.

The Trustees

Dominic Citrone,  Sue Heffer,   Maggie Southwell  & Cheryl Tofield Cook
