Summary

Prickles Hedgehog Rescue of Cheddar needs volunteers to help look after the hedgehogs in our care

Detailed description

Prickles, a registered charity, was founded in 2007. Prickles cares for over 650 Hedgehogs a year, which makes us one of the largest rescue centres in the UK. Hedgehogs really need

your help as their numbers are rapidly declining in the wild. In the 1950’s it was estimated there were 30 million hedgehogs in the UK, it is thought there are now 1 million. They are

declining at the rate of the tiger.


We currently have around 60 hedgehogs in our care. As a volunteer you will be handling the hedgehogs in order to weigh them and check them over. Each hedgehog's crate needs to be cleaned out every day and the hedgehogs need to be given fresh food and water.


Full training will be given and you will be part of a team that is overseen by a friendly group of Duty Managers. We would like volunteers to commit to one morning or afternoon shift per week but we can also take on volunteers who need to be more flexible.
