Brockleby's Pies, whose bakery is located in the borough of Melton Mowbray, has become the latest local business to partner with and support Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust.
Handmade artisan pie makers, Brockleby's, on Asfordby Hill have been searching for a suitable beneficiary to gain from their commitment to sustainability. For a couple of years now they have encouraged customers to recycle their national mail order packaging as well as their pie boxes and they were keen to do this in conjunction with a local charity whose values in conservation are in sync with theirs.
Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust is working hard to protect wildlife and wild places across the two counties, as well as inspiring, educating and encouraging local people to take action for nature. Their use and promotion of conservation farming methods to bring wildlife and insects back to their natural habitats made the partnership a great fit for both organisations.
