Leicester Hedgehog Rescue

Colleen Powell, founder of Leicester Hedgehog Rescue, enthralled members last night with a very amusing account of how she has grown to love hedgehogs and set up the rescue service.

Hedgehogs have been around for many thousands of years.  Today’s modern environment is still proving a challenge to these small creatures as they struggle to adapt.   I was going to list some facts that Colleen shared with us but have just stumbled across this link to some fascinating hedgehog characteristics that you may wish to check out.

Colleen delighted members by bringing along a hedgehog that is used to humans.

She also brought along some hedgehog goodies and details of ones to sponsor.
