Autumn Hibernation Event on Saturday 27th October

Help A Hedgehog Hospital's main Autumn event will take place on Saturday 27th October 2012 at the Arkell Community Centre, Forest Green, Nailsworth. Doors open at 1.30pm.

Autumn can be a dangerous time for young hedgehogs - especially the late -born, underweight "Autumn Juveniles".  Come to the event and learn more about the dangers they face.

There will be a special performance by the Hazelwood Puppet Theatre of "Tales of the Hedgerow" which will highlight these dangers.

There will also be stalls selling HHH merchandise - calendars, Christmas cards, tea towels and other gifts; teas and cakes; tombolas, childrens' games,  and tickets for the Grand Christmas Draw.

As you know, the Hospital relies on fundraising events and donations from generous friends and all money raised goes towards caring for the hedgehogs - food and vets' bills being the biggest items.

So come along to the event - we hope to see many of our friends there!

A Great Weekend!

Our fundraising team was out in full force at the weekend!  On a glorious sunny Saturday in beautiful Stratford Park in Stroud, we joined many other organisations for the Stroud Festival of Nature - a celebration of all things wild and wonderful.  Thousands of people came and enjoyed a lovely family day out, with activities and lots to see.

On Sunday, again in sunshine, we were at the Frampton Country Fair - one of the biggest shows of its kind in the West Country - we were delighted to see so many of our friends there in the huge crowds attending.

All in all - a very successful weekend's work which saw £500 come in towards our food and vet's bills.

This summer has seen an influx of mothers and babies coming into the hospital, all needing treatment and lots of food! We now have to prepare for the busy Autumn Juvenile season, which will no doubt bring another lot of hungry mouths to fatten up before hibernation.

Thankyou to everyone who has supported our efforts!
