We are delighted to announce that we have been chosen as a winner of the #Avivacommunityfund! The Aviva Community Fund offers the chance to get funding for an important cause in your community.
The voting commenced in November last year, for one month and we received the most incredible support from everyone; surpassing our target with over 13k votes!
We have been awarded an incredible £25,000 for our Pollinating the Peak project. Pollinating the Peak is a fun, innovative project with education and community engagement at its core. One of its aims is to increase our understanding of Bilberry bumblebee populations as this is an under-recorded bumblebee and is listed as a Peak District National Park priority species.
We could not have achieved this without the amazing support everyone has shown for this project. We would like to extend a very big thank you to each and every one of you who took the time to vote for the Trust.
We really believe in protecting the #bumblebees and the importance that we place on them. This funding will enable us to #educate & #inspire the #community.
