THIS autumn, why not try something different and wear your wellies for wildlife? Raising awareness and money for wildlife conservation couldnt be easier and you can have lots of fun on the way! Try organising an activity or event at your school, community group or workplace to raise funds for Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust and show off your wellies at the same time. You could put on a welly-themed Olympics, with welly-wanging competitions (seeing how far you can throw a welly, essentially). How about a welly themed cake sale? Or, you could simply give a small donation to wear your wellies to school or work. Ask your family and friends to sponsor the event to raise even more money for the Trusts conservation work.
To accompany all this welly madness we are running our Design a Wildlife Welly Competition for local schoolchildren. All you have to do is design a welly with a wildlife theme using our template. Winners will receive a family ticket to an exclusive Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust Badger Watching evening with special guest, and badger expert, Michael Clark. There are two age categories: 5-10 years and 11-15 years. The winning Designer Wellies will appear on our website.
