Events, talks and media
I have over 8 years experience as a hedgehog rehabilitator and wildlife gardener. I regularly give talks to groups ranging from 5 to 500 people and have a background working in marketing and public relations. You can read more about my freelance communications work in York here.
I offer a number of services that help raise funds for my rescue work:
Events – I regularly run Open House days where you can explore my York wildlife garden and get top tips for wildlife gardening and how to help hedgehogs. I also run evening hedgehog talks with night wildlife garden safaris. I also open up my jewellery shop throughout the year. Find out more about forthcoming events here.
Talks – I have experience of giving talks to a wide range of group sizes. I’m able to talk to your group, business or society about both hedgehogs and wildlife gardening. I make a charge for talks to cover my time and travel costs.
Wildlife garden appraisals: I can visit your garden and make recommendations for how to make it more wildlife friendly. I will visit and discuss your objectives and will then give you a report with my best advice for your specific requirements, garden and budget. This will include what plants to grow and wildlife features to consider as well as how to create them. Appraisals cost from £50 depending on your location. I am based in York.
Media: I have over 20 years experience working in marketing and public relations. I have used my skills to raise awareness of hedgehogs in the local and national news. You can see some examples below. I am available for interview and can also advise charities, individuals and businesses on how to use the media to raise awareness.
Partnerships and collaborations: I am always happy to collaborate with individuals and brands that fit with my values of sustainability, ethical shopping, the environment and helping wildlife.
