Feed the Bees
Please help us bring back the buzz by supporting our new appeal. Bumblebee numbers are declining and the recent soggy summers have not helped. A gift of £10 will help us continue to support Britain's bumblebees by adding much needed wildflowers back into our landscape.
Donate online at justgiving.com/feedthebees, or if you prefer you can simply text BUZZ77, followed by the amount you would like to donate, to 70070 (for example BUZZ77 £10).
And please share our campaign with any friends, relatives or colleagues who would be interested in doing their bit to save the sound of summer. Together we can Feed the Bees!
Each time you access Amazon.co.uk via this link or the widget below we receive a donation worth 8% of your total purchase, at no extra cost to you. Last year, we raised in excess of £3,500 through this Amazon associate scheme. That’s a lot of wildflowers for our bees. So, please remember to use our link to do your Amazon shopping - and tell your friends too!
Are you training for a charity event? Would you like to raise money for a great cause? JustGiving makes creating a sponsorship page quick and easy; and makes it so simple for your friends and family to support your cause. In the past we have had some amazing and intrepid members raise funds through dressing likes bees and running a marathon and undertaking gruelling bicycle rides. We are pleased to support these efforts through our mail and electronic newsletters when appropriate.
“Bumblebees are lovely little creatures - their bright stripes and gentle buzz bring colour and sound to our summer gardens. They are also very important because they pollinate our wildflowers and crops. Sadly things aren't going well and some species are threatened with extinction.
I'm really concerned by these declines and I'm pleased to support the work of the Bumblebee Conservation Trust."
