The Wildlife Rescue and Hedgehog Hospital has been so busy this year that we have only been able to attend one fundraising event. Usually we manage six or seven to raise much needed funds.
Therefore one idea we think may help is to enlist the skills of knitters to make the King Cole knitted tinsel hedgehogs and owls.
The hedgehogs have proved very popular and sometimes they are named after actual hedgehogs in our Rescue. Take for instance these two in the box. These are Pixie and Ted who were sent all the way to Alabama, USA
We can supply the wool, which is the Copper Tinsel by King Cole, plus stuffing which has to be to a recognised safety standard.
However, to save on postage, if you are able to collect from Barlby, Selby and deliver the finished product, that would really help us
So, if you fancy yourself as one of our NIFTYKNITTERS, do get in touch if you can help by ringing Annette on 0771 1883072

The Wildlife Orphanage has had an influx of small hedgehogs over the last few weeks. These are the Autumn Juveniles, born late in the year. They are often seen out in daytime and looking a bit wobbly. Please act quickly if you see one as they go downhill rapidly.
With winter just around the corner, these little hogs will be just too light for hibernation. They need to put on lots of weight to see them through the winter.
If you see a tiny hedgehog roaming about, often in daylight,
