Thank You!

We would like to thank each and every one who has supported us throughout this very busy and turbulent year.

From donations of newspapers, food for the hedgehogs, consumables such as kitchen rolls and black bags through to equipment and financial donations both big and small – ALL of it is very much appreciated and we could not care for the high numbers we do, without your continued support.

We have cared for over 680 hedgehogs since 1st January 2020 and they are still arriving daily.

This year we have been busier than ever with record numbers coming in. We have converted three sheds into hog hotels and we have the most amazing team of dedicated volunteers to help feed and clean the cages every single day, including Christmas day and all bank holidays.

Our team of foster carers ‘take the weight off’ us, and allow us to take in more hogs than we would otherwise have been able to. We have some 65 hogs currently out to foster.
We cannot tell you how much we appreciate you all!!

Little Scruff decided to pop along in his felt sleigh with Santa to wish you all a very Happy Christmas from Jim, Tracy and the hedgehogs.
