STAFF from a vets practice have pledged to support wildlife throughout 2018 by choosing the Worcestershire Wildlife Trust as their charity of the year, writes Neil Gordon.
Clent Hills Vets, which has practices in Bromsgrove, Hagley and Rubery, will be joining the Trust as a corporate member and also be participating in conservation sessions.
Amy Holloway, marketing manager at the practice, said: “We’re really excited to be supporting the Worcestershire Wildlife Trust and finding out how we as a business, and as individuals, can make a difference.”
Staff members Amy Holloway, Rebekka Fiorani and Helen Beesley joined a Trust’s volunteer group recently at Penorchard Meadows, near Hagley, to help remove encroaching scrub from the wildflower meadows.
Amy said: “Spending the day out in the fresh air and mucking in with other volunteers was a fantastic experience, very different from a day in the practice.”
Mike Perry, the WWT’s head of resources, said: “We’re thrilled they have chosen to support us.”
