Wow! What a result! I am so excited - we have won the competition to gain 30,000EUR funding towards our bumblebee project on the Pembrokeshire Coast!
After a couple of very tense weeks while votes were being cast we are delighted that our project secured 59% of the votes, securing us the funding for this really important project. We couldn't be more delighted and can't wait to get started on creating wildflower habitats along the Pembrokeshire coast to support the very rare shrill carder bee and other bumblebees.
I would like to say a huge thank you to all of you who voted and also those who encouraged others to do so; we couldn't have won without you! We are also delighted that so many people got involved, showing the public support for the urgent need to conserve our bumblebees.
Thanks again for your help!
