Steve joined the Hedgehogs’ in 1999 and in 2008 agreed to take on the position of Treasurer. He’s not an accountant, just a simple engineer and happy to say that after handling in excess of £75,000 plus raised and distributed each year, the accounts always seem to balance!
Roger is a long term member who certainly knows the ropes. He’s a whirlwind of enthusiasm and ideas with which he keeps the diary full on both the social and fund raising fronts. Suffice to say there’s never a dull moment when he’s around and he can more often than not be seen in action at most events.
Howard’s Scottish granny taught him to look after the pennies, his English granny taught him to look after the pounds. So he is well qualified to be the Hedgehogs Collections Coordinator.
