Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.

As you may know, the reason I am supporting the WWT is because of my childhood hero, Sir Peter Scott. I wrote to him when I was 10 years old, asking for his job! He sent back a charming letter on pages of blue vellum; indeed a very special and much loved treasure to a small, Brummie boy. Unfortunately the letter was destroyed when our house was flooded some years ago but the contents of letter stay with me and the fact that Sir Peter cared so much that he would write to me. For this letter and for all the work Sir Peter did whilst he was with him, I thank him deeply.

 

I had the chance to thank him personally when I was birdwatching in the Miller's Bridge hide at Martin Mere WWT reserve. I was maybe 25 years old at the time but my brilliantly coloured Bermuda shorts and matching shirt prevented me from saying to him what I wish I had - thank you.

 

Visit Slimbridge, or any of the WWT reserves and see his legacy. Join the WWT and help his legacy grow.

 

To you I say thank you from the bottom of my heart.
