VOLUNTEERS AND HELPING HANDS

Thank you to those who devoted their time to helping the hedgehogs at Hornbeam Wood Hedgehog Sanctuary. Special thanks to those who help us with hoglets, fostering hedgehogs over the winter, and those who are hedgehog guardians. Also, a huge thank you to all those who let us release the hedgehogs we rehabilitated back in to the wild though release sites.

A special thanks to:

Medivet Nine Lives (Redbourn) - This surgery has been very kind to us and helped out with lots of injured hedgehogs that we could not treat ourselves. Special thanks to LouRachel, Sarah and Chris.

Harpenden Beavers, Cubs, and Scouts - These groups have been a great help in making both custom hedgehog shelters and cages. Special thanks to leaders Jeremy, Steve, Sally, and Jane.

FrizKnits - Frances makes amazing knitted hedgehogs for us to sell at stalls and events to help raise money for the hedgehogs. Frances devotes a lot of time helping us to raise money for the Charity.

Bluebell Craft - Harriet makes stunning hedgehog craft gifts for the Charity to sell to help raise funds. Bluebell Craft also donates hand made soaps to the Charity.

I'd also like to thank my mother :P She has taken up a backup role on many occasions when I was unable to get help from others on short notice. She also makes the vast majority of the craft items we sell at stalls to help raise funds for the hedgehogs, this takes a lot of time to do.

MEMBERS, PATRONS, HEDGEHOG ADOPTERS, AND DONORS

Thank you to those who donate and support us continuously and who supported us with one-time donations for the hedgehogs. You have directly helped to maintain and restore important local wildlife for future generations.

The Wild British Hedgehog has been included in the International Union for the Conservation of Nature’s (IUCN) Red List for British Mammals. Their population has decreased by about 30% in urban areas and 50% in rural areas since the year 2000. As of 2020, it is estimated (PTES) that up to 335k hedgehogs are killed each year on the roads. Their habitats have been diminishing and their inability to access and travel though gardens and across roads has become in most cases, impossible. Roads create invisible barriers and also physical barriers for hedgehogs. The use of poisons like slug pellets, and intensive agricultural farming also have a part to play in their decreased populations though the loss of hedges and pesticides. --------------------------------------------------------------------- #hedgehog #cam #hoglets #wild #ukmammals #hwhs #hedgehogsanctuary #harpenden #hertfordshire #charity

​Mike has been helping us with making new stand for the rehabilitation hutches. These look superb and we are chuffed to bits :) Thanks Mike!

REQUEST FOR HELP: Fundraising for new wild hedgehog gardens to home blind hedgehogs at the sanctuary

Hello everyone! We would like to create several wild hedgehog gardens to home special hedgehogs that we are unable to fully release back in to the wild. These hedgehogs are typically blind having endured very bad injuries to the head. If you were thinking of helping Charities this year and looking for ideas to help fundraise, we would love your help! We are hoping some lovely followers might help do some fundraising this year for one or more of our new wild hedgehog gardens to home blind hedgehogs at the sanctuary.
