SPONSOR '30 Days to Save Dolforwyn'

Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust's CEO Clive Faulkner zip wire challengeClive's sponsored zip wire challenge

ZIP WIRE CHALLENGE! On Tuesday 19th May 2015, one man faced the ultimate challenge in his ongoing mission to help wildlife. Clive Faulkner, CEO of Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust, travelled to Zip World in Bethesda to complete the longest Zip Wire in Europe at speeds of up to 100mph to raise money for the Dolforwyn Woods Appeal.

Clive was supported by his team of MWT staff and volunteers who offered words of comfort and support as he covered the mile long descent head first suspended from a harness. You can relive Clive's experience through the video below!

Clive previously raised over £1000 with his leg waxing challenge as part of the Dolforwyn Woods Appeal and hoped this sponsored event will raise even more. The Trust were able to purchase the woodland at the end of March and have secured its future as a nature reserve and wildlife haven. However, more money is needed to cover a shortfall in the campaign fund total which has been filled in the short term by loans from generous MWT members.

If you would like to honor Clive's epic adventure please contact the Trust office or click on the donate button below.

Abi-SEIL!

Photo-phobia

Jane Phillips, our Volunteer Coordinator, has always successfully evaded the photographic lens! We have tried many times, but always failed. However, Jane feels moved to do something tree-mendous to save Dolforwyn Woods, so we now have a rare opportunity! Jane has raised a staggering £1,700 and consequently is obliged to allow us to not only take a photo of her, but also post it on the volunteering page on our website, for all to see!

Look out for this image appearing on the website very soon, but in the meantime, if you wish to give Jane recognition for what has been a very difficult decision, pop in the office or use donate button above to pay with credit/debit card, choosing 'Dolforwyn Woods Appeal' and then adding 'Photo-phobia' in the comments box.
