As part of its Community Fund initiative, Barratt Developments Yorkshire East donated £1,000 to Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, a charity in East Yorkshire.
A Nature Reserve near David Wilson Homes’ Edwin Vale development in Doncaster is one of the more than 100 nature reserves supported by the charity. Wildlife and wild places are conserved, protected, and restored by the charity.
Founded in 1946, the chosen charity manages more than 100 nature reserves across Yorkshire. Creating awareness about nature is a priority for Yorkshire Wildlife Trust.
As part of its mission to protect wildlife in East Yorkshire, the charity cares for birds like bitterns at North Cave Wetlands, as well as beautiful marbled white butterflies at Kiplingcotes Chalk Pits and puffins at Flamborough Cliffs.
Barratt Developments Yorkshire East’s Managing Director, Daniel Smith, commented:
“Yorkshire Wildlife Trust does an amazing job in protecting our wildlife and areas within Yorkshire and they continue to educate us on the importance of such wildlife and their habitats. We’re so pleased to have been able to support them with our Community Fund donation and we hope that our donation will help to raise awareness of the vital work that the charity does, and help them to continue protecting Yorkshire’s wildlife.”
Furthermore, Skerne Wetlands near Driffield, once a commercial fish farm, now supports water voles and kingfishers, one of the UK’s most northern chalk streams.
Yorkshire Wildlife Trust will be able to continue protecting wildlife and wild places across East Yorkshire with the help of the £1,000 donation.
In addition to beach cleaning and raising awareness about marine pollution with local communities and businesses, the donation will assist families, schools and visitors to discover and enjoy Yorkshire’s wildlife.
Yorkshire Wildlife Trust’s Regional Manager East, David Craven, said:
“We want to make Yorkshire wilder, and manage the impacts of our changing climate by working with our natural environment to give more wildlife a home. We thank Barratt Developments Yorkshire East for this generous Community Fund donation as these funds will aid us in our mission.”
