Big Hog Litter Pick Challenge
In term 1 2022/23, as part of the Hedgehog Friendly Campus initiative we took part in the Big Hog Friendly Litter Pick Challenge, which ran from 19th September to 30th November 2022. We collected over 60 bags of rubbish with the help of 63 amazing volunteers!
This year, we are taking part in the same challenge. Any volunteers at our litter picks will receive a digital certificate for taking part, and the winners of the competition receive a free hedgehog home and a free bag of hedgehog food! This year the challenge is running from the 19th September to the 30th November 2023. Come along to a litter pick within this time and help us win!
