Wildlife Trust launch local wildlife calendar

Beaumont Financial, an independent firm of financial advisers, has funded the production of a beautiful calendar, available from Shropshire Wildlife Trust’s shops at The Boathouse Ellesmere and The Cut visitor centre, Abbey Foregate, Shrewsbury, with profits from sales going to the charity.

Beaumont Financial has recently joined Shrewsbury-based Shropshire Wildlife Trust as a corporate member and is supporting the Trust through a number of initiatives.

"I believe strongly in the Trust’s work and expect this to be a long term partnership," said Mark Evans, founder of Beaumont Financial.

Top Shropshire wildlife photographers gave the Trust free use of their images for the calendar.  John Hawkins, a professional wildlife photographer from Ellesmere, contributed a photo of a brambling, a brightly coloured winter visiting bird, while Andrew Fusek Peters gave us gorgeous pictures of a cuckoo, hare and otter.

Six images by the late Shrewsbury photographer, Danny Beath are included, courtesy of his family. 

The calendar was designed by Shropshire-based graphic design and marketing company, Hunter Bevan.

Shropshire Wildlife Trust has around 50 corporate members around the county.  “We are delighted to have struck up a new partnership with Beaumont Financial and look forward very much to working with them in the future,” said Helen Trotman, People & Wildlife Manager at the Trust.
