Holiday parks make donation to Northumberland Wildlife Trust

Northumberland Wildlife Trust has received a £215 donation from a holiday park operator.

Sunday, 28th March 2021, 11:43 am

The donation is from Wooler’s Riverside Leisure Park and Heather View Leisure Park in County Durham, both operated by Verdant Leisure.

Each season staff at both parks ask their holiday hire customers to make a voluntary donation of £1 each time they make a booking.

Mike Pratt, Northumberland Wildlife Trust chief executive, said: “I really appreciate the support the Trust receives, year in year out, from Verdant Leisure - the staff and its customers really are such valued friends of the Trust and supporters of all our work.

“I am especially delighted with this donation and amazed it is as high as many holidays were cancelled or postponed during 2020 due to covid and lockdown restrictions.

"Needless to say, this money will be put to good use ensuring our reserves in the region remain in pristine condition.”
