WildNet - Gillian Day

Good for wildlife, good for business

Supporting Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust is not only good for wildlife and the wider environment - it could be great for your business, too.

You can demonstrate that you and your company are committed to helping local wildlife, protecting the environment and that you are active within the community, by joining us as a corporate member. Not only can corporate membership meet your company’s social responsibility policy, it is a unique way to increase the profile of your business by partnering with a trusted, effective and well-known local conservation charity. We also want to help you, too. Working with us will demonstrate your commitment to lessening your impact on the local and wider environment, and there are great ways to get involved. From volunteering days for your staff to specialised projects to rewilding your land to sponsoring a nature reserve, we want you to get the best out of our partnership.
