Story

Feed the bees

Bumblebees need our help.  Their numbers have been declining because of loss of habitats and the recent soggy summers.  A gift of £10 will help us continue to support Britain's bumblebees by adding much needed wildflowers back into our landscape.  Bumblebees and other wild pollinators need wildflowers for pollen and nectar.

Please help us bring back the buzz by supporting this appeal.

Thank you.

Thanks again to all who have supported this appeal; we have exceeded our target of £8000! These funds will be used to create bumblebee habitats where they are needed most. This appeal will end in a few weeks - about the time the Queens go into hibernation...x

Dear supporters - thank you so much for your generous contributions to our Feed the Bees campaign. We have less than £100 to go to reach our target of £8000! I will update you again soon on how we plan to use this amazing support....

Thank you to everyone who has supported our Feed the Bees appeal - we have nearly reached our target. This income will help fund our wildflower habitat work - even more important after the cold and wet spring this year.

Bumblebees are in decline because of a loss of their habitats. Our landscape is changing, over 97% of the UK's grasslands have been lost in the past 70 years. We work to put much needed flowers back into the countryside to benefit our bumblebees and other wildlife.
