York Press: Yorkshire Wildlife Trust awarded £50k Yorkshire Wildlife Trust awarded £50k

YORKSHIRE Wildlife Trust has been awarded an extra £50,000 in funding from the People’s Postcode Lottery.

The lottery’s support for the Trust now amounts to £475,540, helping to manage the 95 nature reserves under its care and campaign to save precious sites for wildlife.

The Yorkshire Wildlife Trust (YWT) is one of 40 charities to get a share of £2 million in extra funding recently announced by the People’s Postcode Lottery.

YWT Chief Executive Rob Stoneman thanked the lottery and said: “We have a big job on our hands to try reverse the patterns of decline in our wildlife populations and are witnessing the early impacts of a changing climate, so any help we receive is gratefully accepted.

“There is every reason to believe we can combat these losses; the benefits of connecting green spaces up to allow movement through the landscape has been shown to work.”

Maybe it will go towards reopening the road to Spurn Point, which is still closed after last Decembers tidal surge, but i doubt it. probably refit a few offices and buy a some cars for staff.
