Hedgehog Day

26th August 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Come and join us celebrating Hedgehog Day 2019

Hedgehog Day has helped raise over £225,000 to help save hedgehogs in the wild, through funding the SWCC Hedgehog Hospital. The hospital opened in 2012 and has admitted over 4,100 hedgehogs during this time.

The event is organised by Shepreth Wildlife Conservation Charity (SWCC), which has donated over £300,000 to help save wild animals. The charity also raises awareness about species which are threatened with extinction.

If you would like to help support our work, you can donate online at www.justgiving.com/SWCC/donate

You can also purchase our Limited Edition 2020 SWCC Hedgehog Calendar for just £5 at the event!

As well as hedgehog crafts, face painting, crafts, keeper talks and cakes, don’t miss …
