Northumbrian Hedgehog Rescue

Please can we have any newspapers that you no longer want!

At the Hedgehog Rescue Centre in Longframlington we use shredded newspaper as bedding for the injured, sick and very small hedgehogs that are brought in to us.

At this time of the year the hedgehogs require more bedding to keep warm and we are running short of newspapers !

If you or anyone you know has newspapers (no magazines please!) please leave them in the porch in a plastic bag at: 5, Church View or text me on 0772 409 1586 and I will come and collect them.

With very many thanks, Jan Bryce
