The funeral of Les Stocker, pioneering founder of the St Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital has been arranged.

It will be held next Tuesday, August 2, at St Mary’s Church in Haddenham at 11.30am.

Mr Stocker passed away suddenly aged 73, on his way back from a holiday.

He leaves behind wife Sue and son Colin with whom he started Tiggywinkles, as well as his daughter-in-law and grandchildren.
