COVID-19 Update

Due to the rising incidence in COVID cases in our region, we have decided to take further steps to keep members of the public, our staff and volunteers safe. Therefore, we may ask you some other questions when you ring us up after finding a hedgehog.

You will be asked if you have had contact with anyone who has tested positive for the coronavirus, feel unwell or are showing any of the symptoms associated with it. We may ask you to leave the hedgehog on our doorstep so that we can collect it without having contact with you. Please do not take offence, it is to protect you and ourselves.

If you do come to our rescue, please wear a face mask. You will not be allowed to enter the premises. There is hand gel available to use if required.

Our volunteers have all been asked to wear masks unless medically excused – all volunteers should have had an email by now.

Thank you for your understanding, we need to be able to operate as normally as possible, while mitigating risks, to care for orphaned, sick and injured hedgehogs that need us.

Thank you for your support.
