CJ Wildlife's generous customers donate to community Feed The Birds project

As a result of the generous donations from their customers, CJ Wildlife has been delighted to present Shropshire Wildlife Trust with a contribution of £1000.  The donation is to be used on their fabulous community project ‘Feed The Birds’ helping local vulnerable people connect with nature through bird feeding.

Feed The Birds involves training volunteers to visit people who are experiencing social isolation, to install and refill bird feeders and chat about garden wildlife.  

With National Lottery Funding, Feed The Birds aims to reach 100 beneficiaries, matching them with 100 volunteers.  Each beneficiary receives a Feed The Birds Starter Pack consisting of a Bird Feeding Station, a Metal 4 port feeder, 12.75kg Hi-Energy No Mess Seed Mix plus a Garden Bird Identification Poster – all from the CJ Wildlife range.  The generous contribution from CJ Wildlife customers will ensure at least a quarter of the Starter Sets are already funded and ready for use. 

Diane Monether, project officer at Shropshire Wildlife Trust says: ‘We are extremely grateful to CJ Wildlife for their donation towards such an important project. We are passionate about ensuring everyone can have access to nature and bird feeding is one of the easiest ways of doing this’.

CJ Wildlife has over 30 years’ experience in producing and supplying products to benefit the wildlife that regularly visit our gardens. Ensuring that the birds and animals have a better chance of survival when food sources are scarce, and conditions are challenging. A key focus of the business is to not only educate customers about the importance of wildlife care but provide awareness of the benefit that garden wildlife can have on people’s wellbeing.  Rachel Schofield of CJ Wildlife says, ‘The Feed The Birds project is a prime example of how taking an active interest in supporting our wildlife, by simply feeding the birds, can improve wellbeing, happiness and bring people together.’  

CJ Wildlife are committed to continuing to raise funds through customer donations for their charity partners to help support the outstanding work that is carried out in their various projects.
