WEST Fife animal lovers are helping a Rosyth woman save her hedgehog sanctuary.

Nadia Al-Dujaili was forced to move her prickly pals to the Scottish SPCA after the shed she rehabilitates them in suffered water damage.

Now she’s being backed by the community – including Park Road Primary School pupils and local MP Douglas Chapman – in her quest for a new home for the 'hogs.

Nadia, of Middlebank Street, launched an online Crowdfunder to raise cash for a shed and groundwork in her back garden.

She said: "The hedgehogs’ hospital shed is badly needing replaced.

“The roof leaks and due to local flooding problems, water comes in the floor when it rains for long periods.

“I also took a bad turn health wise a couple months ago, and due to both issues I was forced into making the decision to send the hedgehogs to the SSPCA to complete their rehabilitation.”

Nadia contacted her MP to ask for help, following his visit there last summer.

Mr Chapman said: “I was impressed with the level of care Nadia provides for the hedgehogs in nursing them back to health. My office has recently contacted a range of businesses to ask if they can help out.

“If there’s any local business in West Fife who can perhaps supply a suitable shed, that would be a wonderful gesture.

“In the meantime, I’ll be encouraging as many people as possible to make a donation and help re-establish the Forth Hedgehog Hospital."

Nadia added: “Park Road Primary has been so supportive in raising money already.

“A lot of work is needed, the shed is going to have to be raised off the ground a good deal to cope with the flooding, so I appreciate all the donations made so far.”
