A hedgehog rescue charity is appealing to the business community for its support.

Prickles and Paws works closely with the RSPCA and local vets to provide complete treatment, rehabilitation, care and release to sick, injured and orphaned hedgehogs across Cornwall and parts of west Devon.

It also offers a helpline service which is available to the public as well as vets and runs a research programme with a number of universities.

Its aim is to expand the services it provides and become the Prickles and Paws Wildlife Hospital.

The charity is hoping businesses can help fund this ambition by setting up a gifting scheme, such as a donation tin, website link etc.
