Meadows in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park will benefit from £9,413 of funding thanks to a Black Friday campaign by Forest Holidays and the UK National Parks that concluded on 2 December.
The funds were raised through donations made on every Forest Holidays booking made during November and over the Black Friday weekend. With thousands of bookings made, the whole campaign raised £51,065 of which Pembrokeshire Coast National Park will receive a share in 2020.
The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park’s meadows are set to benefit from a share of over £50,000 worth of funding raised during a Black Friday campaign by Forest Holidays and UK National Parks.
Tegryn Jones, Chief Executive of Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority, said: “This additional funding will take the Make More Meadows campaign over its fundraising target and together with donations from members of the public, will go towards creating and conserving this vital habitat, which supports such important pollinating insects.”
Make More Meadows is aiming to raise funds to create more habitats for pollinators, to protect and restore existing meadows and work with landowners to create new ones.
Cat Hawkins, Chair of National Parks Partnerships said: “Huge thanks to our national partners Forest Holidays for this brilliant campaign, which has generated much needed funds for at-risk species in the UK’s National Parks. Protecting the National Parks’ biodiversity is more important than ever, and these funds will make a real impact at a local level.”
