A dozen years dedication to supporting local action for wildlife

Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust has today highlighted its thanks for the continued support of long-term partner Albumedix whose company’s strapline is ‘Dedicated to better health’.

Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust has today highlighted its thanks for the continued support of long-term partner Albumedix; a world-leading biotechnology company based in Nottingham who believe in empowering advanced therapy developers to improve therapies for people with serious diseases, through their world leading recombinant human albumin product portfolio.

The company’s strapline is ‘Dedicated to better health’ and it has been supporting the charity’s work to improve the local environment for both wildlife and people since 2009.

The partnership has also reshaped how the charity connects with local communities and has helped establish some of the Trust’s most enduring initiatives.

Initially focussed on supporting the charity’s efforts to engage communities in the restoration and recreation of wildflower habitats, the relationship led to the launch of the Trust’s ‘Mini Meadows’ project which engaged 20,000 people in local action for wildlife.

This evolved into the Wildlife on Your Doorstep initiative – designed to encourage individuals to do more and to encourage communities to take collective action to benefit a range of wildlife habitats.

Other programmes have focussed on engaging young people in science-based activities and staff from Albumedix have readily engaged in a range of activities from practical habitat management on Wildlife Trust Nature Reserves including the Skylarks reserve at Holme Pierrepont, to supporting information events and fundraising pub quizzes.

The company has also been a key supporter of the charity’s environmental awards programmes and the 2020 Wildlife on Your Doorstep Awards – born out of the partnership were launched earlier this month.

Speaking about the partnership Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust’s Sienna Carver said: “Albumedix have been an outstanding partner down the years. Their focus on science, health and innovation fits perfectly with our ethos. Much of our work is focussed on improving the health of wildlife habitats and a healthy environment supports people’s wellbeing. Working with Albumedix has also encouraged us to pilot new initiatives which have really strengthened our ability to connect with and engage communities in our work.”

Earlier this year the company, which employs 100 staff in Nottingham all dedicated to improving patient quality of life, committed to a further year’s support as part of its “Heart of Albumedix” programme.

Speaking on behalf of Albumedix, Digital Marketing and Communications Manager, Sian Gilfillan, said,

Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust are a truly wonderful organisation that we have had a great relationship with for many years. We are thrilled to be able to continue supporting their endeavours to protect and restore the beautiful environment and wildlife both on our doorstep and across the region.
