East Sussex Wildlife Rescue and Ambulance Service have launched their "Become a hedgehog helper" Gift Experience!

"We have about 90 hedgehogs in care at the moment which is way more than normal, and they will cost up to £150 each to rescue, rehabilitate and eventually return to the wild in the spring," said Trevor Weeks MBE founder of East Sussex WRAS, "as our funds are low, we are hoping that this will help us to fund this vital work. These hedgehogs would not survive if it wasn’t for WRAS. Nationally there are not enough places for sick and injured wildlife to be cared for and we need to expand our work not cut it back, but that is what will happen if we can’t continue to bring enough money in."
