You’re invited to give something back to British wildlife this year – as you do your Christmas shopping.
The official BHPS online shop sells an array of hedgehog-themed goods and puts all its profits back into supporting the BHPS’ important conservation work with hedgehogs – so this Christmas, you can give something back to wildlife!
Fay Vass, CEO of BHPS, said: “We know a lot of us are feeling the pinch this year – so we’ve put together a gift guide with some budget-friendly gift ideas, which will also help support hedgehogs across the UK. From our famous calendar, to mugs, eco-friendly coasters, toys and books for the kids, there’s a gift for every hedgehog-fan out there, plus a collection of hedgehoggy Christmas cards!
“Hedgehogs are in sharp decline and it’s more important than ever that help protect their welfare and habitats – and supporting our work while you shop is a great place to start.”
These 10 stocking-stuffers all come in at less than £10 each before postage:
- BHPS calendar (£6.95) – Get organised with this 2024 calendar, packed with photographs sent in from BHPS supporters, rehabilitators and members of the public. It comes with Hedgehog Awareness Week in May clearly marked!
