Hedgehog rescue in London Colney needs your help

A London Colney woman is desperately worried about the future of her hedgehog rescue centre.
Founder of The London Colney Hedgehog Rescue Esther Chant says that half of the annual income which would have paid for medicines and vet bills will be lost this year due to the cancellation of fayres which usually help raise vital funds.
Amid the coronavirus, public gatherings have been cancelled and she says the impact could be devastating for the lives of hedgehogs.
Esther said: “The impact of Covid-19 is going to destroy lots of animal rescue centres who rely on charity events to survive.
“We are unsure what the future holds for us as we go further into the year!”

Most hedgehogs come in from throughout Hertfordshire and the outskirts of Essex but some have come from much further afield.
