Hedgehog fosterers needed in Worthing

A WILDLIFE charity is appealing for foster carers in Worthing to look after poorly hedgehogs over the winter.

Brent Lodge Wildlife Trust, based in Chichester, has around 500 hedgehogs boarding there. So now, they are asking for animal lovers to come forward and offer them a home.

Foster carers would need a rabbit or guinea pig-type cage, which would need to be put in a warm room.

They would then return the hedgehog to the trust in February, 2013, for a check-up, before later taking it back to be released.

Anyone who can help the trust should call Danny on 01243 641672.
