Cosy up to wish toads goodnight for winter!

Froglife is busy preparing for our cosy event on Friday October 1st to say goodnight to UK’s toads for winter. Tucking in the Toads is a bed-timed themed event at the Orton Hall Hotel in Peterborough. Pyjamas are optional as we launch a year-long campaign to help save toads.

Tucking in the Toads is a seasonal launch for our campaign to help these little garden heroes,” said Sam Taylor, Communications Coordinator from Froglife. “We’ll be wishing the toads a safe hibernation and aiming to protect more of them when they wake up in spring. This year alone, volunteers have rescued over 65,000 toads from roads."

You can still join us for the launch for £5 a ticket, free to Froglife Friends and Toad Patrollers. All the money raised will go to the Tuppence a Toad campaign to promote toads and support them through on the ground conservation work and research. The night will feature information about how toads are getting on across the UK, ideas to help them, and launch the year’s campaign in style. Toad merchandise will also be on sale, including our gorgeous new greetings cards, designed by our competition winners!

“This will be a heart-warming night to celebrate the work of the Toad Patrollers, and wish the toads a happy hibernation,” said Nathalie Cox, Froglife’s Toad Ambassador. “Froglife are so good at mixing serious conservation with fun, this promises to be a great start to an important campaign.”

Tucking in the Toads takes place on Friday October 1st from 7pm at the beautiful Orton Hall Hotel just outside Peterborough. You can find out more or book tickets from http://www.froglife.org/tuppence/tucking.htm or 01733 558844.
