The Wiggly Covid Fund
PLEASE NOTE: We are now raising money to help us plant 4000 hedge plants in 2021/22 – this is app 500 metres of extra habitat for wildlife. If you’d like to play a part (plus a spot of carbon offsetting) we’ll plant one tree for every £1 you tip. You will find this option in the Wiggly Checkout when you are placing an order. View More info on our 'Hedge' Fund Here https://www.wigglywigglers.co.uk/pages/the-wiggly-hedge-fund
Here at Wigglys we are very proud to announce that we raised over £10000 between the first lockdown in April 2020 until March 2021. For every order we took over £40 we donated £1 and you our Wiggly Customers gave whatever you could in our donation pot in the Wiggly Checkout.
All the funds have gone to help Wildlife in one way or another. We’ve supported lots of Hedgehogs which is amazing and I know all the money will have been put to good use.
