Currently she is unable to sit-up unaided and can’t crawl or walk. She has limited control over her arms and hands, making daily activities a struggle. Help raise funds to get Mila moving by printing out the image, colouring it in and handing it back to Boydens with £1.
Hedgehog Day – 28th August 🗓

interacting with humans!
Mental Health Awareness Week
It’s Mental Health Week and we’re using this as an opportunity to better educate ourselves on the topic. Mental Illnesses come in a variety of different forms and affect everyone in a different way, with symptoms some wouldn’t believe. To help you spot an individual in need we’ve broken down some of the characteristics that may be an early sign of a developing mental disorder but it’s important to note there are various reasons behind someone’s behaviours and not everyone wishes to share.
