Housebuilder helps to protect Leicestershire butterflies with donation to conservation charity

As part of its 10-year anniversary campaign and its dedication to supporting local wildlife, Mulberry Homes has donated £1,000 to Butterfly Conservation.

Butterfly Conservation is a charity focused on protecting butterflies and moths all over the UK. Their core aims are to recover threatened butterflies and moths, increase numbers of widespread species and inspire people to get involved by educating them and raising awareness about the important role butterflies and moths play.

Mulberry Homes’ contribution will go towards the charity’s ongoing conservation projects, helping to halt and reverse the decline of endangered species.

Sandra Muldoon, Head of Fundraising at Butterfly Conservation, said: “We are hugely grateful for the donation to Butterfly Conservation. As the UK charity dedicated to saving butterflies, moths and our environment we rely on donations to fund our work, which includes important research that in turn provides advice on how to conserve and restore vital habitats.

“We also run projects to protect more than 100 species of butterfly and moth and are involved in conserving hundreds of sites and reserves. All of this is only possible thanks to generous donations like this.”

Kerry Jones, Sales and Marketing Director at Mulberry Homes, said: “We are delighted to be supporting Butterfly Conservation. We were appalled to learn that 76 per cent of butterflies have declined since 1976, and we hope that with this £1,000 donation, Butterfly Conservation are able to prevent that number from increasing.

“Aiding and protecting all species of local wildlife is something very close to our hearts at Mulberry Homes, and we’re very proud to be helping to keep our nation’s beautiful butterflies and moths safe.

“Butterfly Conservation has a local branch in each county we operate in, including Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, Leicestershire, Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire, so we couldn’t be happier to be supporting these creatures which live locally to where we build our new homes and communities.”

The donation comes as part of Mulberry Homes’ 10-year anniversary campaign, in which it committed to donating to charities and organisations local to its developments throughout 2021.

The charity’s East Midlands branch covers Leicestershire, and is located nearby to the developer’s The Mulberries development in Lutterworth.
