Charity tackling prickly subject of fundraising for new hedgehog hospital

A pandemic is perhaps not the best time to start a fund-raising campaign, but a small charity caring for some of Britain’s smallest orphans has been forced into a tight spot. 

Annie Parfitt’s Help a Hedgehog Hospital is desperately in need of new facilities and is hoping to raise a final £7,000 of the £12,000 needed through a crowdfunding campaign. 

And because TheRaikesJournal.co.uk supports all things charity in Gloucestershire, we could not resists doing out bit.

“We have taken down an old shed and have some wonderful plans to build a fantastic new build to care for more sick, injured and orphan hedgehogs and hoglets continuously coming into our care”, said Ms Parfitt, who founded the charity more than 12 years ago and has a team of dedicated volunteers. 

The new facility will replace the existing building for the lost, abandoned and needy nocturnal nibblers of such tasty morsels as worms, snails, slugs and insects.
