Meet Bob

Meet Bob. Bob is a hedgehog that was found in a bad way.
Fiona, who runs Urchins Hedgehog Care in York, nursed Bob back to full health. Unfortunately, Bob was unable to be returned to where he was found. Without hesitation, we offered Bob a new home in our wonderful grounds and Fiona chose us to adopt him.
