Big Give – April 2023 results
A massive thank you to all who donated to the Big Give Green Match Fund campaign.
During the week of 20-27 April, we worked with Big Give, offering us the fantastic opportunity to double all public donations received in support of our #RESGarden project, designed to inspire everyone to learn more about insects 🦋
With your help, we have raised £10,322 in total for our amazing scientific public resource which will provide a comprehensive multi-year education and outreach programme using the garden’s outdoor laboratory and natural resources in the garden, allowing for academic research and schools to visit and for the local community to enjoy the garden year-round.
An excellent result and we are so thankful!
