A hedgehog rescue charity is £100 better off thanks to the diligent work of the Melksham Household Recycling Centre team, and a donation from The Hills Group charity committee.
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."
