Redrow brings people closer to nature with wildlife donation
Our East Midlands division, which recently announced its latest development, Hugglescote Grange near Coalville, has partnered with the Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust to help improve the webcam equipment in its Osprey nest at Rutland Nature Reserve. The live streaming facility provides a unique insight into the lives of these special birds and encourages conservationists of the future to learn more about their habitat.
From the birth of chicks to fledglings in the nest, this year in particular, the cameras have brought the great outdoors to many people in lockdown, enabling people all over the world to experience these amazing birds of prey up close from home.
The funding will be used to help improve the live streaming facilities, which encourage and inspire the next generation of conservationists to learn more about local wildlife. The regional partnership also forms part of our wider bio-diversity strategy, which sees us commit to creating nature-rich communities and spaces at its developments.
Ryan O’Sullivan, Head of Sales in the East Midlands, said: “We’re delighted to be supporting the Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust’s latest fundraising appeal.
“We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy nature, and like the Wildlife Trust, here at Redrow, we are committed to inspiring communities to look after and care about the nature that’s on our doorstep.”
Abi Mustard, Osprey Information Officer, at the Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust, added: “We’re extremely grateful to Redrow East Midlands for its kind donation.
“The new equipment is vital to allow us to keep the live stream going next year, which encourages so many people to understand and get closer to this wonderful species.”
We’re currently building at Hugglescote Grange, on Grange Road. Nestled in the village of Hugglescote, the development will feature two, three and four-bedroom homes, starting from £190,000.
As part of our commitment to creating thriving communities, we will also be providing contributions to support the local area, including the local library, care facilities and additional funding for the local high school.
Located just a mile from the heart of Coalville, and within easy reach of Leicester, Derby, Nottingham and Birmingham, Hugglescote Grange will offer the perfect mix of rural and town living, perfect for first-time buyers, growing families and couples alike.
