Hedgehog Appeal
Shepreth Wildlife Park

One of our charity partners; Shepreth Wildlife Park needs your help! The Hedgehog Hospital has been inundated with hundreds of baby hedgehogs struggling to survive hibernation. They desperately need donations of pet food and old newspapers to use as bedding. The centre is designed to provide a home for around 90 animals at one time - and they are currently looking after about 200. They need to be 650g to be a safe weight for hibernation but a lot coming in are between 200g and 400g. If you can spare any of these items, please drop them into the hospital at the park - Station Rd, Shepreth SG8 6PZ. Thank you!
