We are deeply saddened by the news of the death of our much loved patron John Challis.

John was a dedicated patron for over a decade and during that time we got to see just how much he adored our prickly friends. He was totally committed to the cause, championing the hedgehog and BHPS whenever he could, readily agreeing to filming, events, media requests and promoting the charity with great warmth and humour. We will miss him very much indeed and send our most sincere condolences to his family and friends at this time of great loss.
