Superheroes armed with shovels!
Every year we need to put wood-chip down on our sites as they get so wet and muddy. And every time pretty much the same people help us get it done. With Neil from Sportlink leading the charge with Karen Grapes by his side, people from Colemans optician, Rock-Solid, and of course Neils running group get it done. And not only do they get it done; they make it look like fun while doing it!
Peace of mind!
Thank you yet again to our friends at Wetnose Animal Aid for another generous donation!
With lockdown part 2 just about to start and our shops being forced to close yet again we need all the help we can get!
Love you loads!
Save the planet!
Sounds impossible? Our friends at Earthglade are proof that it is possible - all that has to happen is that we all try!
Not only do they run a shop with all things eco-friendly but they act as a collection point for the recycling scheme and volunteers by pre-sorts everything before handing it over to us!
Now, if busy people running a business can do all that - imagine what impact we could do if we all pitched in! Why not starting with replacing some of that plastic you have at home.... Check out their shop here!
Landing on all four paws
Beautiful Ella was one of the many cats surrendered to us every year.
Heather, the owner of The Garden Cattery, fostered Ella for a few weeks, just to allow us to assess her and get to know her a bit. This helped us to find her the perfect forever home for this beautiful little girl 🙂
Thank you Heather!
Thank you to the lovely community in Taverham Drayton and Thorpe Marriott. They arranged a Pumpkin Trail and all the leftover pumpkins were donated to us at Hallswood! The animals love them <3 Same time next year?
Thank you to the lovely Tracey B who more than once has popped in to Kens corn stores and prepaid bales of straw and hay for us!
Not only is it a great support for us, but also for Ken's corn stores who are amazing supporters of Hallswood!
Pennies really do make a difference!
Thank you to everyone brought us full Penny Jars in the last few months. We just placed an order with Aldi for a whole months supply of food for the hedgehogs! 1200 tins! Every doubted that every penny count? Well, here's the proof!
Lonely Marathon during a pandemic!
Thank you to Paul B who ran a marathon in aid of Hallswood. Due to the pandemic, London marathon was cancelled but Paul decided to run anyway! With support from friends, family and Hethersett dental surgery he raised an amazing £930.31!
The money will be used to pay for part of the extension to our hedgehog hospital, something Paul was very happy about - He loves hedgehogs!
Cash and cheques for hedgehogs 😀
Thank you to the many cash donations and of course cheques sent to us for both the animal ambulance (plans to buy the vehicle in January!) and the emergency extension to our hedgehog hospital. Too many names to list them all but we love you all <3
