On Tuesday 28 October 2014 at 1.15pm Former England Rugby International, Rory Underwood will be joined by a “badger”, creepy crawlies and a group of children for an afternoon of wildlife discovery with the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust at the Melton Building Society’s new Wildlife Information Centre on Grantham High Street. The event marks the reopening of the branch following extensive refurbishment and the launch of the Wildlife Information Centre.

The Melton is working with the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust to raise funds to protect wildlife and encourage enjoyment of the natural world. The Society is giving away special Wild Ones Packs with new Young Savers Accounts. The packs contain a pocket wildlife guide, wildflower seeds and more to encourage young people to enjoy wildlife and get into the habit of saving.

Other initiatives include a special one year Family Membership of the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust for just £10 – a saving of £30, for a limited period. The Melton will also donate £150 to the Trust for every Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust member who completes on a mortgage.

“We are thrilled the Melton has chosen to help the wildlife in Lincolnshire,” says Paul Learoyd, Chief Executive, Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust. “The Melton’s commitment to its local communities has a clear connection with the Trust’s objectives and this is a great opportunity for us to engage local people with their local environment.”

The Melton plans to create Wildlife Information Centres in its Oakham and Melton branches in association with the Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust next year.

“Supporting wildlife and the Trust ties in with the Society’s community ethos and its commitment to providing sustainable mortgages, affordable housing and encouraging responsible living,” said Martin Reason, Chief Executive, the Melton.
