Events in September

Help a Hedgehog Hospital will be busy fundraising in the next week or two, attending three events in early September.

First will be a new event for us - a summer community fete held by Listening Post, a small local charity,  at St Aldate's Church, Finlay Road, Gloucester, on Saturday 1st September.  The fete starts at 11am and continues till 2pm.  We will have our stall there, and also hope to give a short talk about hedgehogs at 11.30am.  Our new calendars and other merchandise will be on sale.

The following Saturday, 8th September, will see us taking part in the Stroud Festival of Nature - this was a lovely event last year and promises to be bigger and more successful this year. There will be lots of local organisations there - all with a common interest in our wildlife and natural places, so come to Stratford Park and learn more about our endangered wildlife and support us too!

From there, we will go straight to Frampton to set up our stall at the Frampton Country Fair, which is the main country event in Gloucestershire. Sunday 9th September will be a busy day for us we hope!

We hope the weather is kind and that as many of our local friends as possible will come and see us and support our efforts to raise much needed funds for the Hospital. This year has seen a large number of admissions, consequently expenditure on vet bills and food for the hedgehogs has been high.

Hope to see you there!

Tetbury Flower Show 12th August

Fundraising events have been a bit thin on the ground lately - we had to forgo the Dursley Festival due to the waterlogged field, then the Stroud Show was cancelled....... but we will be at the Tetbury Flower Show on Sunday 12th August.

Our Help a Hedgehog Hospital stall will include a Tombola and Lucky Dip, lots of new hedgehoggy  merchandise and our new 2013 Calendar will be on sale for the first time!  It's not too early to be thinking of the New Year - so make your next calendar a Hedgehog one - full of photos of our lovely hedgehogs!

We are hoping the sun will shine and hope to see you there!
