Presenting our latest Champions of Sherwood!

Thursday 29th January

Presenting our latest Champions of Sherwood!

Mansfield based manufacturing company Mayborn Group, are the latest of our Corporate supporters to become Champions of Sherwood.

The company, best known for its Tommee Tippee brand of baby and toddler products has been supporting the Trust for two years and most recently invested in their local Rainworth community by funding education trips, for pupils to learn about heathland habitat and visit some of the county’s finest examples of this rare and valuable land.

Speaking of their support, Leysa Relf, Group Business Continuity and Corporate Responsibility Advisor said; “We’ve thoroughly enjoyed supporting Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust over the past couple of years and are delighted to have been recognised for our contribution to the Sherwood area of the County.”

In December a team from the Mansfield facility got their hands dirty at Strawberry Hill Heath – one of the Trust’s key Sherwood Reserves - working to remove scrub and bracken so that the heathland habitat can expand. Heathland is incredibly important habitat, home to rare species such as nightjar and woodcock.

Yesterday employees of Mayborn Group - Dean Atkinson, Manufacturing Manager & Gavin Colmer, Production Manager - were presented with their Champions of Sherwood certificate by the Trust’s Western Conservation Officer, Andrew Lowe, who visited their Mansfield site to offer Land Management advice.

The Champions of Sherwood campaign has been set up to recognise those making a difference to wildlife in the Sherwood Forest natural character area and to raise money to enable Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust to continue its conservation work in this area.
Anyone interested in becoming a Champion of Sherwood is invited to contact the Trust’s development team on 0115 958 8242.
