Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been stepping up for nature. Calling on our trusty supporters to build an army of bucket collecting volunteers, for our together for trees campaign. If you haven’t heard, Tesco stores nationwide have opened their doors to us on the 21 & 22 September so we can raise money for the rainforests.
I’ve been staying behind after work with a group of colleagues to call our loyal supporters, asking if they can spare a couple of hours in an attempt to help us raise over £1 million for the campaign. I have been amazed by the positive reaction and sheer generosity of our members, even those that are slightly sceptical about our partnership with Tesco, realise that the 20 million customers that pass through their doors every week could help us in our mission to Save Nature. Speaking to our members and hearing first hand their willingness to give up a couple of hours of their time reminded me why I do, what I do. I’m an administrator in the office 5 days a week and don’t get out onto the reserves very often. I sometimes feel like I’m not doing much to help the RSPB create a world richer in nature but I’ve been reminded that by being a small cog in a much bigger wheel of motion can make a difference!
No matter how big or small our role is or how much or little time we can spare, together we can save nature.
If you think you could help us for a couple of hours at your local Tesco store on the 21 or 22 September please contact our Together for Trees coordinator Lili Kumar email@example.com 01603 660066. To find out more about our Together for Trees campaign take a look at:
