Please put wildlife on your Christmas list this year!

With the big day less than six weeks away, why not get your shopping off to a cracking start and give the gift of nature this year - or how about a wild Christmas party or winter walk to get you into the Christmas spirit?

“Surrey Wildlife Trust hopes everyone will think about making their Christmas a little wilder by supporting the Trust this year,” said the Trust’s Charlotte Magowan.

“Why not inspire your friends and family to discover their wild sides with our range of exciting, unusual and inspiring presents and events and let’s make 2018 a great year for wildlife in Surrey!”

“Nature in Surrey is in trouble and it needs our help now,” added Charlotte. “Supporting us this Christmas will ensure we can continue our vital work to protect Surrey’s countryside, giving wildlife the best chance of survival all year round.

“So please share some seasonal goodwill and put wildlife on your Christmas list this year - if we all give a little bit, together we can do so much more!”
