A woman who looks after injured hedgehogs has been given cash to help her carry on looking after her patients.

Vicky Greenwood, who runs Oggles Hedgehog Rehabilitation and Rescue Centre, was given £355 by the Co-operative Community Fund.

The cash will help Vicky pay for food, vets bills and heating pads for her prickly friends. She looks after around 80 hedgehogs, as well as a sparrow and two pigeons, from her home in Dewsbury Moor.

Vicky said: “It’s very helpful, especially as a lot of other shelters are closing down.”

Vicky, who initially set herself a 15 hedgehog maximum when she started in 2010, aims to release as many as possible back into the wild once they are nursed back to health.
