Jane Taylor – Trustee
I have been involved with SWCC since its launch in 2011. My involvement began as a result of my daughter Libbys passion for tigers, these days it’s a family affair with both my girls Libby and Aimie actively involved in fundraising of all kinds, supported by my parents, whether it’s printing T-shirts or tickets, running stalls or knitting hedgehogs to sell, nobody escapes. Fundraising for such great causes is very rewarding and lots of fun, but most importantly it is about educating a new generation about conservation.
Sally Willers – Secretary
I work as registrar at Shepreth wildlife park and I have been secretary of SWCC since the charity was set up. I enjoy being involved with fundraising events, my favourite event being our Halloween evening. SWCC has succeeded in building and running a very successful hedgehog hospital along with supporting other valuable conservation projects and I am very proud to be a part of it.
Jeanette Richards – Trustee
When I was asked if I would consider being a Trustee of SWCC, I quickly accepted as it was an ideal opportunity for me to be part of a like-minded, dedicated team of people who are committed to a cause which matters to me and of which I am passionate about. Fundraising for animals such as the magnificent tiger or our prickly hedgehog friends is extremely rewarding but most importantly I enjoy helping educate people about animal welfare, wildlife and conservation.
Colin Taylor – Treasurer
Being an accountant and having strong connections with Shepreth Wildlife Park and its family, I was delighted to become treasurer when the charity was formed. I have always been fascinated by hedgehogs and their secret lives, and I am therefore pleased to be a part of such a worthwhile charity.
Mike Hunter – Trustee
