Nature lovers at the school’s preparatory school handed a £200 cheque to the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds for helping them to establish a wildlife area.
The nature conservation charity’s drive to create a ‘home for nature’ sowed the seeds of a project at Magdalene House involving RSPB volunteer Terry Houghton and a school science club run by teacher Tina Crawley. With support from grounds staff at the school the team has completed the first stage of a wildlife haven on the campus, featuring bird boxes, a branch and log pile and a bug hotel. The money handed over to the wildlife charity had been raised at the Magdalene House nativity play, ‘The Grumpy Sheep’. Mrs Crawley said: “We wanted to say a big ‘thank you’ to Terry for his help in setting up the wildlife area. The money raised will be used at Titchwell Marsh nature reserve to develop children’s activities.”
