Hodmedod’s Hedgehog Support is a non profit organisation to raise awareness of the plight of Norfolk hedgehogs and to raise funds for the rescuers and carers of Norfolk hedgehogs.
2016 saw the launch of this project with a Hedgehog Day at Fairhaven Water Gardens on October.
This was followed by a stall at the Christmas Market at Norfolk Snow Sports Club in November, then a stall at the Hallswood Christmas Fair and at Taverham Garden Centre in December.
We managed to raise enough funds to be able to supply some food and help to several rescue centres over this winter period.
Norfolk knitters have been busy knitting hedgehogs for us, which we’ve been re-homing – most of these ones have gone to their new homes now – but more on the way!
These new hoglets are looking for new homes too.
More arrived too.

2017 brings us a whole new project – not only are we supporting several rescue centres we are also going to be working with Hallswood Animal Sanctuary to build a dedicated Hedgehog Hospital.
With the rising number of hedgehogs needing care each year this has become a ‘must’ before winter 2017.
We need to raise at least £5000 before September 2017 to get this built and then get it fitted out before the winter.
We’ve done it!!
We’ve raised the money for the HOGSPITAL.
Thanks to everyone for the amazing effort – we’ve now got the money -so planning has started.
How did we do it?
Many events and sales.
