Events update

Our event at The Arkell Centre in Forest Green on Saturday 27th October was a great success, raising nearly £600 towards the food and vet's bills for the care of the hedgehogs.  Our thanks go to all who came and supported us at the event, those who helped on the day and behind the scenes.

We have several events coming up in the run up to Christmas - yesterday our hedgehog stall was at the Cirencester combined charities Christmas fair - a lovely event which was very well attended. As the only wildlife stall there, along with all the others supporting humanitarian causes, our merchandise was a little bit different and sold well. We raised £200 to keep our hogs in food for a week or two!

On Friday November 16th we will be at the Frampton Community Centre in Lake Lane from 3pm -7pm and hope to see some of our friends there. Our calendars for 2013 and our exclusive Christmas cards - the painting done specially for us by our friend Tricia Britton - have been selling well and people tell us they love them! Thankyou Tricia for the lovely painting!

The next event after that will be the Charities Fair at Wotton Under Edge on Saturday 24th November - this is always a lovely event and well supported. We hope that this year will be no exception!

On Sunday 25th November, Pauhla will be at Cranham Craft Fayre, selling Help a Hedgehog merchandise along with her own beautiful things, which will also benefit the hedgehogs by 10%.  So go along and support Pauhla as well as the hedgehogs!

The following weekend will see us at Teckels Christmas Fair - Saturday 1st December, starting at 6.30pm. Last year this was a great event - lots of stalls and lots of people - so go along and get your Christmas gifts and help animal charities at the same time.

We will be beginning to get event fatigue by the time Stroud Goodwill Evening is held on Friday 7th December!  But we will be there and hope you will be too!  Our hedgehogs need us to raise all the money we can - over 100 hungry mouths eat lots of food!

Finally, our last two events before Christmas - Friday 14th December will see us back in Frampton for another Fayre at the Community Centre - this will be the one where we will be pulling out the prize winners for our Christmas draw - so buy your tickets in good time at any of our events beforehand! Lots of lovely prizes!

On Saturday 15th December - do your shopping at Tesco's in Stroud!  We will be there with our collecting boxes for Help a Hedgehog Hospital, hoping that our friends will be as generous as ever and give a little bit for the hogs at Christmas!
