CARING Crow readers have already been emptying their cupboards as part of our campaign to help hungry hedgehogs.
We launched our Help for Hedgehogs initiative last week to appeal to members of the public to donate old towels and tins of dog or cat food for Shepreth Wildlife Park's dedicated Hedgehog Hospital.
Already items have been flooding in to The Crow offices, in Angel Pavement.
Shepreth has the only facility of its kind in the region for caring for Hedgehogs, and at this time of year they are inundated with spiky refugees brought in by members of the public.
The park's animal manager Rebecca Willers said: "It is both sad and astonishing when you think of the demand for this purpose built unit.
"If the species continues to produce second litters so late on in the year we are concerned we will not be in a position to cope with numbers. We are already considering extending the building we have now," she said.
