The Suffolk Hedgehog Hospital is a charity run on a voluntary basis. It was founded by Sue Stubley and is funded purely by donations, which allow us to provide important medical care, food and accommodation for the hedgehogs.
Our goal is to rescue, rehabilitate and release the hogs back into the wild as soon as they are fit and healthy.
Sue has always had a passion for nature, and has been caring for sick and injured hedgehogs for over 14 years (with the occasional owl, deer and jackdaw added in for good measure). She has transformed her home into a hedgehog haven, dedicating her time and funds to the well-being of the hogs. Her knowledge of how to care for wild animals is ever-growing, and she hopes to raise enough money to expand and buy a larger plot of land where she can care for the hogs.
The Suffolk Hedgehog Hospital was made into a charity in 2020 and work continues to get these prickly creatures back to the wild as they deserve.
OUR FIRST CHARITY PATRON
Suffolk Hedgehog Hospital are delighted to welcome singer Mari Wilson as their first Charity Patron.
In the 1980's, Mari was also known as The Neasden Queen of Soul, Miss Beehive, The High Priestess of Hairspray and The Nymphette of the Nail Varnish! (If you don’t know of her, please you tube her).
In 1982 Mari's records began entering the charts and she soon had six hit singles, the biggest being 'Just what I've always wanted' and 'Cry me a river'. both taken from her album 'Showpeople'.
Mari has had a varied and successful career and is still frequently recording and touring. By her own admission, she is a big animal lover and was delighted to become a Patron for Suffolk Hedgehog Hospital.
We're absolutely delighted to have Mari on board; to continue endorsing the amazing work Sue does for hundreds of sick, injured and orphaned hedgehogs and to generally highlight the ongoing work required to maintain this dramatically declining species through her own social media accounts.
