Viv Smith who runs Malvern Hedgehog Rescue issued ‘a cry for help’ on facebook as she is currently rearing over 80 rescued baby hedgehogs in the ‘hogs hospital’ located in her back garden.
I contacted Viv following a team meeting with our housekeepers Julie, Hannah and Sharon where it was agreed that they should do something to help.
It was fantastic to pop around to see Viv this afternoon and to donate food and other items that the charity urgently requires. It was very humbling to see the work that Viv does for these beautiful animals who are displaced for a variety of reasons.
