Dorset Wildlife Trust is delighted to receive a generous donation of £750 from Woods Furniture Store in Dorchester.
During the month of April, Woods donated £10 to DWT for every £250 spent in store as part of their initiative to raise awareness of the charity work DWT carry out in the area to protect Dorset’s nature and wildlife. Each customer who spent over £250 wrote their name on a cherry tree leaf to acknowledge their contribution to DWT.
Hamish McGhee, Managing Director of Woods Furniture said: “All of us who work here live in the area and enjoy rural Dorset. We wanted to give something back because this is hugely important in the local community. We often take wildlife and nature for granted, so we want to do everything we can to help preserve it.”
Alastair Cook, Director of Marketing and Fundraising for DWT said: “Dorset Wildlife Trust is very grateful for this donation. We are very keen to work with local companies and organisations that are passionate about wildlife in Dorset, and Woods Furniture have made a fantastic contribution to our work to protect and restore wildlife habitats across the county.”
They also gave away 400 free cherry trees to those who visited the store (with no purchase necessary) to help benefit wildlife and adorn gardens, big or small!
Woods Furniture is at 34-35 High East Street, Dorchester, DT1 1HN. For more details, please visit www.woods-furniture.co.uk.
