Leading UK Bakery Invests in a Slice of Local Nature Education

Nottingham based Riverside Bakery, the UK’s leading chilled quiche manufacturer, has renewed their Wildlife Guardian corporate membership with Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust for a further year.

Becoming a corporate supporter can help to fulfil the demands of companies’ corporate social responsibility policy, engage staff and reach new audiences providing a way to differentiate the business. It provides an opportunity to join a network of like-minded individuals and local companies, which support Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust in protecting wildlife for the future, whilst making a tangible difference to business and to the local environment where customers and employees live, demonstrating the businesses’ commitment to the local community and the environment. Benefits include attracting new customers and clients as well as helping to raise companies’ profiles.

Out of the office environment, Corporate Membership can provide great team building opportunities for companies. 2018 is looking like a great year for Riverside Bakery to watch the ‘flour’ grow at their local nature reserve full of wildflowers at Kings Meadow.

Scott Temprell, HSE Manager at Riverside Bakery (part of the Addo Food Group) said “Becoming a Wildlife Guardian was a new venture for Riverside Bakery initially but renewing our corporate membership again this year was a swift easy decision due to the positive impact it has had for staff and on the ground locally through Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust.” Scott continued, “We are looking forward to volunteering again on our local nature reserves as staff had such fun helping with conservation activities at Skylarks Nature Reserve in August. We are also keen to extend our support to the Education Programme run by Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust, ensuring a new generation can germinate a passion for nature. This stemmed from our staff inspiring their children to get wild daily during the Trusts’ 30 Days Wild campaign in June earlier in the year. To be able to support a programme of nature activities for schools and families across the city is a great initiative we would be proud to support.”

Holly McCain, Senior Development Officer at Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust commented: “We are delighted that Riverside Bakery has chosen to renew their Wildlife Guardian corporate membership with us. As a local Nottingham-based company located close to the King’s Meadow Nature Reserve, we are excited that Riverside Bakery is keen to support our conservation work in Nottingham. The company’s workforce is also eager to do more volunteering with us – helping out on our sites such as Skylarks Nature Reserve – as well as support our education programme which is inspiring the next generation to care about and protect wildlife.”
