Locations of our Charity Tins:
We do not use Charity tins on the streets to fundraise. The only places where you would ever see one of our Charity tins is inside a local shop in Harpenden, or at stalls and events that we attend to help raise funds for the Charity.
You may also see one of our Charity tins in a local veterinary practice in the Harpenden and Redbourn area. The donations from those Charity tins are used to help with hedgehog medical treatments at that veterinary practice.
Please also note that we are not associated with any other hedgehog or wildlife rescue centre or sanctuary. We do not have any partnerships with other rescue centres and we are only based in one location (Harpenden). The only two Trusts/Charities we work with are The British Hedgehog Preservation Society and The Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust.
