We’re kickstarting an important research and education programme with the help of a £390,000 grant.
Our drive to boost research while demonstrating our impact took a significant step forward this year when we were awarded £390,000 by the King Charles III Charitable Fund (KCCF) .
The fund was set up in 1979 by His Majesty King Charles III when he was the Prince of Wales. Its aim is to transform lives and create sustainable communities using profits from sales of the Waitrose Duchy Organics range.
KCCF named Plantlife as one of seven charities to share grant funding of £1.95m in an announcement made in January. We were selected in recognition of our work to promote environmental sustainability – a subject close to the King’s heart.
Thanks to this support, we are now able to launch our new Science and Impact Programme. The project will focus on demonstrating our impact so that we can continue to influence national and global policy makers. In addition, it will help us share organisational learning, expand research networks and develop a longer-term education programme.
Over the summer, we were given the opportunity to showcase our work first-hand to our generous donors while highlighting the difference their support is making.
In June, we welcomed staff from KCCF and Waitrose to our juniper restoration site in Wiltshire. During a guided walk, we explained more about our conservation work and the benefits which our efforts to protect one species has had on wider biodiversity.
The following month, staff from Plantlife were thrilled to accept an invitation to a reception held at St James’s Palace.
The event was attended by representatives from a variety of charities supported by KCCF. It gave us a valuable opportunity for networking and sharing our conservation message. Our experts also took part in a panel discussion to help promote our work on the wider stage.
Our support… will have a real impact in helping… to create sustainable solutions to support nature and mitigate the climate crisis.
