Local Members secure support from local company for Wildlife Trust’s work with local school

The Wildlife Trusts are the UKs largest provider of environmental education with schools but funding for education work is difficult to secure, meaning that charities often have to subsidise educational visits and activities. Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust, which works with around 10,000 children each year estimates that for every school session, its members and suporters provide a subsidy of around £5 per child. Now, thanks to an initiative developed by The Beeston Wildlife Group, local companies are being encouraged to contribute towards the cost of establishing programmes with local schools.

On Friday, Miles Hallam of Beeston Based Fred Hallam Ltd attended the first activity day organised by the Wildlife Trust for pupils of Sunnside Academy. The event was also attended by the Mayor of Broxtowe, Cllr Stan Hepinstall.

Speaking about the event, Miles and Andrew Hallam said:

"Since 1908 Fred Hallam Ltd has served Beeston and supported many families through 2 world wars and hard times. Which is why today we as a family are still committed to giving back to the community.  By supporting the Wildlife Trust and seeing local school children benefit at first hand from a trip to the nature centre it has already been most rewarding."

Companies wishing to support activities with local schools should contact Tracy Lawton or Isabel Greed on 0115 958 8242 or email (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
