Be a Champion of Sherwood for #givingtuesday December 2nd

#GivingTuesday started in the The United States in 2012 as an antidote to the start of the festive shopping season, which is kicked off by ‘Black Friday’ sales and ‘Cyber Monday’ shopping online.

More and more companies are bringing the Black Friday sales and the Cyber Monday online shopping spree to the UK. #GivingTuesday on December 2nd,coordinated by The Charities Aid Foundation, is a remedy to the pressures of Christmas spending and gives an opportunity to help the causes we all care about.

Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust is committed to protecting and enhancing the remaining areas of Sherwood's forest and heathland. However, efforts to safeguard the future Sherwood Forest need new investment to help to reconnect wildlife-rich spaces.

This is why the trust need help this #GivingTuesday. Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust believes that more needs to be done to restore and reconnect our famous Forest and has developed the ‘Champions of Sherwood’ campaign to enable everyone to play their part in safeguarding what remains of the Forest and helping to restore its legendary landscape. At the heart of the campaign is the Sherwood Forest Restoration Fund, a fund which will be used to care for existing areas of Sherwood's heathland, woodland and wetland habitat and to fund research, education and restoration projects.

Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust is already caring for key areas of Sherwood Forest and working with a wide range of partners including The Forestry Commission, The University of Nottingham, Local Authorities, community groups and private landowners to restore and reconnect the Sherwood Landscape but to do more; need your support.

Donations to the Sherwood Forest Restoration Fund will be spent directly on conservation and education programmes in the heart of Sherwood Forest, so to find out more and become a Champion of Sherwood by making a donation today go to www.championsofsherwood.comand show your support on social media with #givingtuesday.
