Volunteers and Helping hands

Nine Lives Vets - Based in 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 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.

Kate - Kate is our Hoglet Queen Mum, she is extremely knowledgeable on hedgehogs and currently specialises in helping baby pinky/hoglets. Kate gives up some very unsociable hours to help the hoglets which is hugely time intensive often requiring attention on the hour, every hour! It would be almost impossible for me to care for orphaned baby hoglets with out Kate. Kate also helps with the larger awareness and fair events I go to for the hedgehogs.

John - John has been helping us with lots of hand made hedgehog homes, hutch stands, and various maintenance jobs to help fix hedgehog hutches and storage areas at the sanctuary. John is also one of our 'Hog Runner's' helping to rescue hedgehogs and collect them from his local area on our behalf. John is a local Champion of hedgehogs in his area and does a huge amount to help hedgehogs in gardens in and around his street.​

Sarah - Sarah helps with us stalls and awareness events and is also one of our 'Hog Runner's' helping to rescue hedgehogs and collect them from her local area on our behalf. Sarah often helps out at the last minute.

Claire - Claire helps with stalls and and also educational and awareness group visits. Claire has also helped us with fundraising and has worked for many other charities in the past.​

Suzanne - Suzanne has helped us with various online website related projects and documentation, she is also the star behind our quarterly new letters. Suzanne also helps with stalls and awareness events and some promotional activities.

George & Sam - George and Sam have helped the hedgehogs by making amazing craft items which we sell at stalls and events to help raise money for the hedgehogs.

Frances - 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.

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.


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 charity receives no funds from the Government and our work is largely funded by people like you who want to support local wildlife and help British Hedgehogs.
