Become a Small Business Star this Christmas!

Become a Small Business Star this Christmas!

Everyone should be able to turn the work they do into good and this Christmas we want to help small businesses make a positive impact that expands far beyond their work.

The Small Business Star campaign will help businesses to raise more funds for Somerset Wildlife Trust and this year, Work for Good have a match funding pot of £50,000 to help make an even bigger impact!

Businesses simply pay in their raised funds, from 9am on Monday 6th December, and Work for Good will double your donation* up to £250 per business, until the match funding pot runs out.

We shine brighter when we work together, let’s make this Christmas magical.

Barn owl web cam - meet Finn and Orla!

Barn owl web cam - meet Finn and Orla!

We're so pleased to be able to bring you a live feed so you can get to know Finn and Orla - a successful breeding pair of barn owls living in the Blackdown Hills. (Warning: it's addictive!)

We're delighted to announce that their 4 eggs have now hatched, and so you'll be able to spot some baby owlets on the live stream!

If we want to still see beautiful creatures such as barn owls in the future, we need to make sure we look after the places they call home. We hope they connect you to nature, entertain you and inspire you to take action.

Come and join us as a Small Business Supporter through Work for Good, and help us protect the wild places these owlets will call home.
