It’s been a funny day at wildonline today , and I don’t mean that in the ha ha sort of way.
We have been talking to a local rescue charity for some time , trying to arrange a few fund raising days. All was going well , both concept and format agreed with the centre manager , a win win situation. However a change of management means starting again , convincing the staff that our intentions are honourable.
I totally understand their concerns over animal welfare , but unfortunately a well intentioned article in the press has caused concern. And once again I totally understand why.
The problem is , we never used the phrase or words printed in the article and never ever would have. It was published without the chance to proof read , which turns out to have been a massive mistake. Fledgling Trust strained with the charity. I really hope not ,
but just for the record …. who would want to cuddle a hedgehog ?
