Gloucestershire based business, Authentic Adventures have raised an amazing £10,000 for local charity Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust.

For every singing, walking, painting and photography holiday sold since 2009, Authentic Adventures donated, on average, £80 to the Trust for local nature conservation work, such as protecting threatened species such as the water vole. 

“It’s wonderful to know that while our customers are relaxing on holiday both here in the UK and abroad that they are also supporting their local wildlife,” said John Brough, Managing Director for Authentic Adventures.

“As a company who shares many values with Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust, I am delighted to present the Trust with a cheque for £10,000 raised over the last two years.”

Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust manages 60 nature reserves throughout the county and the money will be spent on creating and maintaining valuable habitats for wildlife.

“Our nature reserves are the home to some of the most threatened species in Gloucestershire.” Said Head of Fundraising and Marketing, Lynn Toon, “We want to create the right habitats for species such as the water vole, otter and marsh fritillary butterfly to regain a stronghold and spread throughout the county, once more.”

But it doesn’t end, Authentic Adventures have pledged to continue their support of the Trust and have just published their 2012 holiday brochure.

By booking one of their amazing painting, walking, singing or photography holidays, you too can raise money for Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust.
