The Hedgehogs are a charity group unique to Farnham entering their 55th year having been formed in 1959 by members of the then Farnham Youth Club, whom felt they were more fortunate than most and wanted to help the local community in some positive way. A sentiment which still holds firm in today's organisation and its current membership of over 50 from all walks of life.
From the outset the Hedgehogs raised funds for local good causes, charities and individuals within the Farnham locality and in 2001 the organisation became a registered charity.
Currently the Hedgehogs fund raising activities raise over £50,000 a year and in the last decade they have raised in excess of £400,000. All administration costs are met direct by members subscriptions thereby enabling 100% of monies raised to be is fed back into the local community of Farnham and its surrounding villages.
