Community Help To Buy A Second Incubator For The Hedgehogs!
Updated: Sep 19, 2019
I'd like to thank everyone who has helped us to donate towards a second incubator for the hedgehogs we rehabilitate, this is a wonderful thing for you all to support us with.
I can now confirm we have the funds to buy a second incubator, this incubator will be housed at Hornbeam Wood Hedgehog Sanctuary with it's main function being used for very sick/injured adult hedgehogs.
We will be buying a second Brinsea TLC-40 Eco Intensive Care Unit, The unit costs about £450. It is cheapest unit in this range of incubators but will do just fine for us. It's mainly the size of the unit that changes per model, and as most injured hedgehogs won't be moving about much then the smaller unit is great.
The unit may also be used for short emergency duration of baby hoglet deliveries/rescues but most young pinky/hoglets are now being looked after very kindly by Kate who has the first incubator we purchased though donations and fundraisers.
A breakdown of who has helped us for this incubator: - £30 from Sue - £57 from 1st Wheathampstead Brownies - £43 from FrizKnits on orders of her knit ornaments - £233 from FrizKnits Childwickbury stall knit ornaments
- £41 from FrizKnits on orders of her knit ornaments
- £64 from FrizKnits on orders of her knit ornaments
Total... A massive £468!!!!!
Thank you so much everyone 🙂. We are overwhelmed by the support we received for this fundraiser and totally ecstatic we reached the goal! You are all so kind, thank you from us and all the hedgehogs we rescue and rehabilitate at Hornbeam Wood Hedgehog Sanctuary!

If anyone would like to help us with fundraisers, we are looking to try and raise enough money to buy a microscope to examine the stools of hedgehogs. This will allow us to determine if the hedgehog has worms and if so what type to help speed up treatment for rescued hedgehogs. The units I think would be suitable that have the capability to produce digital scans and have the magnification are around £400.
