Robin Pearse, site supervisor at Melksham HRC put aside any coins which were found during the daily site clean-up and after two years this totalled £24. The Hills Group charity committee decided to boost this amount up to £100 with its own £76 donation.

As Robin explained: “I’ve made my garden ‘hedgehog friendly’ so I am really pleased that Kim and her team will benefit from the donation. They give so much of their time to give orphaned and ill hedgehogs a second chance.”

A grateful Kim Goodridge from Hedgehog Rescue in Neston near Corsham said: “It is so kind of Hills and Robin to think of us and donate the £100.

“Mealworms are hedgehog’s favourite food, so the money will go towards that."

Kim added: "We are being inundated with young dehydrated hoglets during the hot weather. Providing water in a shallow dish can help them survive."
