I invited Tracy Pierce to attend a reception for community champions at Downing Street in March 2023.
Tracy is the founder of ‘Hedgehog Help Prestatyn’ which looks after injured and orphaned hedgehogs across North Wales. She is also a Keep Wales Tidy Litter Champion and helped to organise seven community litter picks as part of the charity’s Spring Clean Cymru campaign.
After her visit to Downing Street, Tracy said:
“I'm passionate about nature and care greatly about our declining hedgehogs. A big part of this involves planting, litter picking and raising awareness. But I couldn’t do this alone, so I’d like to say a huge thank you to all the other volunteers I work with.”
I was very pleased to welcome Tracy to Downing Street in recognition of all the hard work she carries out in the local community.
She started doing this important work in 2013. Over the years she has rescued countless hedgehogs and inspired others to do the same. On top of all this work, she also finds time to play an instrumental role in keeping our community tidy by carrying out regular litter picks.
During her visit to Downing Street she got to meet with other community champions as well as the Prime Minister, who praised the vital work they are all doing in their communities.
I am a huge supporter or Keep Wales Tidy, for more information see their website www.keepwalestidy.cymru
