Charity of the month: Knit for Nature

Hedgehogs may have been around for 15 million years but the British population has dropped by a third in the last ten years. So the Somerset Wildlife Trust have launched their Knit for Nature campaign to raise awareness and funds for wildlife conservation and you can get involved by knitting little hedgehogs designed by LK designer Amanda Berry!

Knitters can purchase the patterns for Rustle the Hedgehog and Bluebell the Baby Hedgehog for £3.50 and £2.50 respectively with the addition of £1 p&p if you choose to receive the pattern by post instead of by email. Best of all, you can use the pattern as many times as you like and make an entire family of cute hedgehogs! Try making stories for your knits by making them in crazy colours or take photos of them in intersesting places.

You’re then invited to share your photos and stories by using #knitfornature on their Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest pages or by emailing .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) so that they can exhibit them on their website.

Jump across to Somerset Wildlife Trust to purchase these adorable patterns and if you make more than one, send the extra hedgehogs back to the address below so that they can be used to spread the word even further raise more funds. You can also find out more about how to welcome hedgehogs into your own garden and see what other’s have made!

Hedgehogs can be sent to:
Somerset Wildlife Trust
34 Wellington Road
Taunton
TA1 5AW
