#TEAMEARTH ~attending charity, Hedgehog Rescue

Hedgehog Rescue is a voluntary group of individuals who care for sick, injured and orphaned hedgehogs, within our own homes in the West of England, covering  South Gloucestershire., Bath, Somerset & Bristol.  

Co-ordinated by Yate-based carer Yvonne Cox, hedgehog carers look after the animals in their own homes, with many funding their own work.  But some carers have so many hedgehogs to look after, they need financial support, so the money raised from talks, adoptions, donations and sales go to help the carers pay for food, cages and medications etc

Many hedgehogs are killed and injured every day in Britain. As well as the pain and suffering these animals endure, many young babies are left orphaned and have to be hand-reared before release. As well as the road kills every year, humans are also responsible for many hedgehog deaths and injuries through the irresponsible disposing of litter, habitat destruction and the use of garden tools & chemicals.

Through education and awareness, Hedgehog Rescue hopes to encourage the public to consider the consequence of these actions and consider the implications to hedgehogs and other wildlife.

Through our talks we hope to raise awareness of the problems hedgehogs face in our gardens, towns and countryside. The Hedgehog Rescue talk is very visual  using  toy hedgehogs to emphasise the dangers we cause through carelessness &  thoughtlessness. The talks are probably our biggest fund raiser.

We also attend festivals, fetes & garden shows with the stall of gifts and toys. We can also come to residential homes, enabling your residents the opportunity to purchase gifts without the hassle of going to the shops. Many people also buy goods from Hedgehog Rescues’ stall for the Shoe box appeal, helping 2 charities at the same time.
