Pupils and staff from Poole Grammar school have shown their support to wildlife in Dorset by donating £660.84 to Dorset Wildlife Trust’s (DWT’s) Urban Wildlink Appeal in support of DWT’s most ambitious conservation project, The Great Heath Living Landscape.
A non-school uniform day was organised by student, Adam Hinks, to raise money for wildlife in the local area.
Bursar and Clerk to the Governors of Poole Grammar School, Johnathan Stiby, said,
The pupils and staff of Poole Grammar School are delighted to support Dorset Wildlife Trust, which has been so helpful with the school’s Green Week which takes place each year in May. We are keen to support local charities and organisations when we can, and are really pleased that this particular donation can be used to help protect key wildlife habitats within our local community.”
The money will be donated to Urban Wildlink , which aims to raise the funds needed to secure ownership of 1435 acres of wildlife-rich land, currently being sold by the historic Canford Estate. Once secured, the land will form the foundation of the development of an ambitious new partnership venture ‘The Great Heath Living Landscape’ which will be delivered across south-east Dorset.
