Somerset Wildlife are thrilled to have been nominated by a member of Somerset County Council, Heather Hall, to receive a £1,000 from Jardine Lloyd Thompson (JLT), an insurance and risk management services - as a result of a prize draw.
Every year, Jardine Lloyd Thompson, a Public Sector Risk Practice, attends an event for the Public Risk Management Association called the Alarm Conference. Everyone who attends the conference can enter a prize draw, the prize a £1,000 donation to a registered charity of the winner’s choosing. The chosen Charity this year was Somerset Wildlife Trust, thanks to Heather Hall!
Heather Hall, Service Manager for Somerset County Council, explain why she chose Somerset Wildlife Trust:
“After going to the Trust’s Summer event, Somerfest, and meeting one of their fundraisers, Tom Slocombe, I was incredibly impressed by and interested in the work of the charity. Therefore when I had the chance to donate money to a charity of my choice, Somerset Wildlife Trust immediately jumped to mind. I am very interested in wildlife and being new to the county, there was no question that they would be my charity of choice.”
Katie Arber, Director of Marketing and Fundraising from Somerset Widlife Trust was delighted to receive the generous funds;
“We are delighted to be have been nominated by Heather Hall from Somerset County Council to receive Jardine Lloyd Thompson’s 2016 ALARM conference charity donation. This funding will help us to continue our work for wildlife in Taunton and throughout the county so it can be enjoyed now and by future generations. It is only thanks to the support of many individuals and organisations that we are able to help ensure that Somerset’s wild places and wildlife remain such an important part of living and working in the county.”
