Dorset Wildlife Trust has been bowled over by a generous donation of £1000 from Enterprise Holdings Foundation, after being nominated by one of the car rental company’s local employees, Janene Scurfield.
The cheque for £1000 was presented to Dorset Wildlife Trust’s Chief Executive Simon Cripps by Ben Grist, Risk Supervisor at Enterprise rent-a-car, after Janene, from Southampton, recommended Dorset Wildlife Trust as a charity to support. Janene’s family are long standing nature lovers and members of DWT.
Alastair Cook, Director of Fundraising and Marketing at Dorset Wildlife Trust said “We are delighted that the Enterprise Holdings Foundation has made this generous donation to support Dorset’s wildlife and are very grateful to our member, Mrs Scurfield, for requesting the donation. Dorset Wildlife Trust relies heavily on the support of local members and businesses, which in turn enables us to look after many of the most beautiful parts of the county and inspire the next generation to love nature.”
How will this donation help?
This donation will allow Dorset Wildlife Trust to continue their conservation work around Dorset, and further their effort to protect wildlife and the Dorset landscape in their 50th year as Dorset’s biggest conservation charity.
