Kay Jackson and Jo-Ann Jenkins from the School Admissions Team are raising awareness about the risks facing hedgehogs by knitting hedgehogs.
'The population of hedgehogs in Britain is suffering from a serious decline. The most recent analysis of the research done through the combined work of the British Hedgehog Preservation Society and the People’s Trust for Endangered Species indicates that urban populations have fallen by up to 30% and rural populations by at least 50% since the turn of the century.' www.britishhedgehogs.org.uk
Kay and Jo-Ann will be selling the knitted hedgehogs with the sales being donated to the British Hedgehog Preservation Society.
