Fundraising events in May

The Help a Hedgehog team has been busy fundraising during May!  Our stall at Randwick Wap on 12th May raised over £180 and we had a good day in the sunshine.

On Sunday 20th May our Jumble sale in Frampton was a great success - lots of jumble & other stalls, wonderful cakes & teas - and the final total raised was over £450!  Many thanks to all who donated items, made cakes, helped on the stalls and to the people who came & spent their money!  Special thanks to Jo who made it all happen.

Yesterday - 26th May was the Grand Village Fete at Brimscombe, our home patch, and a glorious sunny day brought out the crowds!  Our efforts raised another £200 for the Hospital. Everybody at HHH is a volunteer - there are no salaries or rents to pay so all the money we raise is used for the care of the hedgehogs - food, medication and and vets' bills being the main expenditure.

The beautiful print of Hugo donated by the artist, Cath Hodsman, (see the last blog entry) was raffled at Frampton and Brimscombe, with the draw taking place yesterday afternoon. The lucky winner was Mr Stuart Baker.  Other signed, limited edition prints of Hugo are available to buy at £30 each - Cath is generously donating 10% of her sales of this print to Help a Hedgehog.

Our next event is next Saturday, 2nd June, when we will be holding a stall at the Stroud on Water festival on the Marling School field.

Many thanks to all our supporters - we hope to see you at an event soon.
