Dobbies picks charity

The Royal Society of Wildlife Trusts (RSWT) has been voted Dobbies' 150th anniversary national charity partner.

The charity turns school grounds into wildlife-friendly areas. 

RSWT, one of three finalists, won a public vote to become Dobbies’ latest charity partner as part of the retailer’s 150th anniversary celebrations. Trees for Cities and Gardening Leave were also shortlisted.

Dobbies’ UK fundraising target of £50,000 will help to bring wildlife into school grounds up and down the UK by creating habitat for wildlife and places where children can explore, play and get close to nature as well as providing advice and activities. 

Wildlife gardening activity booklets, titled ‘My Wild Garden’, have been created to help families make wildlife part of their gardens, no matter how big or small their outdoor space, and will be available at Dobbies from the bank holiday at the end of May.
