  • Manage a badge box

Our bumblebee pin badges are very popular with members of the public and you could help us to sell more of them by managing one or more of our badge boxes. We currently have boxes placed at the cash desks in garden centres, nature reserves, and even a chip shop so that members of the public can buy a badge (for £1.50) and support bumblebee conservation in the process.

If you can think of somewhere in your local area to position one of our boxes then please let us know. All you need to do is gain the permission of the shop owner, for example, take the box and the badges (which we will send you) along and then revisit the box once a month to collect any money raised and restock the box with more badges. This is a great way to volunteer if you have a limited amount of time but still want to do something worthwhile.

“Few people realise just how important bumblebees are. They are charming little things and a pleasure to see, but they also do an essential job which many people take for granted. If bumblebees continue to decline then we face ecological turmoil. Join BBCT today and support their important work.”
