Tiggywinkles charity campaign comes to a close

We hope you’ve been following our Home Safe Home campaign over the last few weeks.  We’ve had a lot of fun building Hector’s mansion and raising money for such a worthwhile charity, but sadly all good things must come to an end.

As of today, the final total raised for Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital is a huge £351.46!

Thank you!

We’d like to say a big thank you to all our kind donors and everyone who’s followed our campaign on social media. We hit five targets giving Hector the hedgehog a house, sky dish, garage, garage extension and west wing extension.

Despite our £1,000 target being a little out of reach, our cardboard constructors were having so much fun that they went ahead and built the full mansion anyhow!

You can see all stages of our mansion building below:

Whilst our charity campaign has come to a close, the work at Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital continues. When the nurses and veterinary surgeons are hard at work treating injured hedgehogs, birds and reptiles, the office team are busy keeping up with admin.

To help them out, we’ve also donated over £220 worth of stationery and packaging.

We hope you’ll continue to support Tiggywinkles and keep an eye out for our next charity campaign.

Hector’s mansion grows and so does our fundraising!

Since our last blog entry just three short days ago, we’ve had huge support for our Home Safe Home campaign!

We’ve now raised over £290 for Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital and our team of cardboard constructors have added a garage and garage extension to Hector’s mansion:

Hector’s cause has been a big hit on social media too and he’s even had a mention from comedienne, Pam Ayres.  We’d like to say a big thank you to all our kind donors and followers.

Help us support Tiggywinkles

This incredible charity is totally reliant on public generosity. Each year they treat over 10,000 hedgehogs, deer, badgers, foxes, wild birds and reptiles who have been injured, before releasing them back into the wild.

It’s great to see so much support for such a worthwhile charity and we’re really looking forward to seeing what next week holds.  Will we raise enough to give Hector a west wing extension?

We hope so!

A great start for our charity campaign – and Hector’s mansion!

It’s been an exciting few days since we launched our Home Safe Home campaign to support Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital. If you missed the launch, see it here.

Thanks to our generous donators we’ve raised over £100 already which means we’ve smashed our first and second milestones and Hector’s house has now got a sky dish!

The more we raise, the bigger the difference we can make

Tiggywinkles is completely reliant on donations from the public. Each year they treat over 10,000 sick or injured animals free of charge. Hedgehogs, badgers, deer, wild birds, foxes and reptiles are brought in by the public as casualties and the staff at Tiggywinkles nurse each one back to health before releasing them into the wild.

Please help by donating as much as you can

To help Tiggywinkles treat all their patients this winter, we want to raise £1,000. We’re donating packaging and we’d love you to help us reach our target. It’s quick and easy to make a donation at our Just Giving page.

As Hector’s mansion grows we’ll post updates our blog and you can see how much we’ve raised over on our website.

We’re raising money for wildlife this winter

As winter sets in across the UK we’re helping Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital to treat sick and injured hedgehogs at their most vulnerable.

We’re told cardboard boxes make warm, cosy places for hedgehogs to hibernate, so we’ve launched our Home Safe Home campaign to support Tiggywinkles. We’ll be donating £100 worth of packaging directly to charity to help sick and injured animals, and for a bit of fun we’re also building a cardboard mansion for Hector the Hedgehog and his friends.

As donations grow, so will Hector’s mansion

Throughout January, we’ll build a home for Hector using cardboard boxes and packaging tape. Every time we reach a fundraising milestone we’ll extend it, adding east and west wings, a swimming pool, tennis court and much more!

You can see the latest photos of the building works as it happens on the blog and our website.
