The Yorkshire Wildlife Trust (YWT) is a charity dedicated to conserving, protecting, and restoring wildlife and wild places in Yorkshire. Their vision is for a Yorkshire that is abundant in wildlife, with more people having a genuine and meaningful connection with nature. As we’re Gold Members of YWT, we support them both financially, and by getting our hands dirty and completing practical projects within our local community.

On Wednesday 9th August, we took part in a Wild Work Day with YWT and sent a team of volunteers into Leeds to complete work at Primrose Valley.

Our team were tasked with clearing out pond weed and tidying up the ponds banking’s, allowing wildlife to flourish, and helping the people of Leeds better connect with nature.

Our team of volunteers had great fun, and had some support from the animals we were helping out on the day.

We’d like to say thank you to Sarah and Penny from YWT for their help and guidance on the day, and a big thanks to the team of volunteers from Symphony!

We’re looking forward to supporting our local wildlife again at our next YWT workday.
