BBBBBRRRRR!!!! ..... Is it nearly Spring yet?

It's been a while since we updated our blog.......... not since Christmas in fact.

Most of the more than 140  hedgehogs have put on lots of weight and those large enough to hibernate have been asleep for quite a while. Some smaller ones have decided to stay awake & take advantage of the food on offer. We will be releasing most of them when they are ready to go.....hopefully when the weather warms up a bit.

It's been quiet on the fundraising front lately too, apart from our programme of talks which has continued throughout the winter months. We do talks to groups of all ages - call John on 01453 885653 to book a talk for your group. We don't charge a fee - but as this is an important source of income for Hospital, we are grateful for donations, or for the group to organise an event.

Our young friend Isabella is doing just that - a sponsored swim - all this week from 23rd - 30th March she will be swimming two hours daily at the Virgin Active pool in Gloucester - by the end of the week she will have swum 1300 lengths of the pool - 19 miles - equivalent to a Channel swim! If you would like to sponsor her - just go to our Paypal button on the website and say what it is for.

Now we are starting to get busy with our Spring events.........let's hope we get some warmer weather soon!

A full list of our planned events is on the website - but we will be starting off with a Craft Activity Day
( hedgehog themed of course!) at the Corinium Museum in Cirencester, on Easter Saturday, March 30th, from 10am -4pm.. This is also tied in with Cath Hodsman's exhibition of her prints, which is currently running, till April 8th.

Our Spring Event at Bussage Village Hall will be on Sunday 14th April - 10am - 2.30pm. There will be stalls, games, tombola, and refreshments, including Cream Teas! Tickets for our Spring Draw will also be on sale. There may also be a chance to meet one of our patients.

Our Art and Craft Fayre at Frampton on Severn on Monday 27th May promises to be a great day - lots of super stalls and a chance to win one of the lovely prizes donated by the stallholders in our Spring Draw.

We have also booked space at many local events throughout the next few months, so hope to see lots of our friends there.
