Firm a shining light for work with wildlife

The Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust said it was delighted to welcome Mansfield-based Kingfisher Lighting as the business sponsor of Rainworth Heath Nature Reserve.

One of the last remaining areas of heathland in the county, the reserve is part of the historic Sherwood Forest area and is just a stone’s throw from the company’s head office.

Kingfisher Lighting is an exterior lighting company that has committed to helping the environment with responsible lighting schemes to minimise the impact on wildlife.

Lowland heath has disappeared by 80% since the 1800s, but thanks to the support of Kingfisher Lighting the trust can work to protect the existing heather at Rainworth Heath, as well as introducing it to nearby sites.

Holly McCain, senior development officer at Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust, said: “The company’s support of Rainworth Heath Nature Reserve is invaluable in supporting our work to restore and reconnect the legendary Sherwood landscape.”

Kate Summerfield-Breeze, marketing manager at Kingfisher Lighting, added: “We are so pleased to be working with the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust by sponsoring Rainworth Heath Nature Reserve. We are really lucky to have such a wonderful reserve so close to the office and it feels great knowing we are doing our bit to help our local wildlife.”
