Hedgehogs going hungry

It’s an incredibly busy time for us at the hospital.  This long, hot, dry summer has resulted in us becoming inundated with starving hedgehogs and young birds who have struggled to find food – such as earthworms, beetles, slugs and snails - due to the lack of rain.

Donate a can of dog food and help feed our hungry hedgehogs…
Our hedgehogs get through an enormous amount of dog food every week.  If you would like to help us with a donation of dog food, we’d greatly appreciate it.  Visit our ‘Items needed’ page to see how you can help.

Baby House martins thriving

House_martinHere’s one of the eight baby House martins that we are currently caring for.  They arrived with us at around one week old and had to be hand fed.  Being so short of help at the hospital, Angie had to bring these little House martins to the last Coffee morning to ensure they received their regular 40 minute feeds!

Now they’re feeding themselves and have just begun to perch.  Soon we will transfer them to one of our outdoor enclosures, preparing them for release into the wild.


We desperately need more volunteers…

Running water – phase 1

Today saw us take the first step in our challenge to bring running water to the hospital site. This morning the digger arrived to excavate the ground across the adjoining farmland, from the hospital to the Fleckney Road. Laying the water pipe is our first task and is costing in the region of £2100. The next phase will be to finalise the legalities and then to connect up to the water mains, which we hope to be able to do this year.

At the moment we are totally reliant on a supply of water from an underground rainwater tank.  Last summer this ran dry leaving us with no option other than to buy in tankers of water to care for our patients.  To get a supply of running water is a priority for us now.

Any donation towards these costs is greatly appreciated and will take us closer to achieving our goal.

You can make a donation at our JustGiving page>

Many thanks.
