Funding boost for Feed the Birds project

Feed the Birds phase Two has received funding from National Lottery Community Fund and Garfield Weston Foundation to support the training of 100 volunteers across Shropshire.

Focusing on Oswestry and Shrewsbury initially, volunteers will be matched with someone who is socially isolated or perhaps isn’t able to get out as much as they used to and would benefit from a weekly visit by a volunteer to fill up their bird feeder for them and to chat about what they have seen. We are looking for volunteers to undertake the one-day training here in Shrewsbury at the end of June. Please contact Dianem@shropshirewildlifetrust.org.uk if you are interested in volunteering or know someone who could benefit.  Volunteers from the Shrewsbury or Oswestry area will be prioritised but we plan to roll it out across Shropshire eventually. For Telford feed the Birds you can contact Kerry.davies@telford.co.uk

In addition to the funding, we were delighted to win a re-branding competition with Reech Media here in Shrewsbury and look forward to revealing the new logo in early June.
