Staff at Marley Court Care Home are saddling up to raise money for Chorley Hedgehog Rescue on Tuesday 29th March.
The organisation is committed to the preservation and rehabilitation of hedgehogs. To help raise awareness, Marley Court Care Home is seeking sponsors after residents chose to support the local charity.
A recent survey, The State of British Hedgehogs report, showed that the number of hedgehogs in rural Britain is facing a steep decline. However, populations in towns and cities are starting to recover. It is charities like Chorley Hedgehog Rescue that are aiding that recovery.
The virtual bike ride will take place in the care home with the team aiming to cycle 124 miles with staff, residents, friends and family all taking part.
