Charles in new com­mit­ment to Dales wildlife

Yorkshire Post - - ROYAL WEDDING -

THE PRINCE of Wales has com­mit­ted to con­tinue act­ing as a cham­pion for con­ser­va­tion in the York­shire Dales.

York­shire Dales Mil­len­nium Trust said Prince Charles had ac­cepted their in­vite to ex­tend his pa­tron­age of the char­ity.

The Royal has been the char­ity’s pa­tron since it was set up in 1996. Since then, it has re­cruited more than 15,000 peo­ple to de­liver projects worth over £30m, has planted 1.4 mil­lion na­tive trees, re­stored more than 700 hectares of wild­flower hay mead­ows and at­tracted some 40,000 peo­ple to na­ture and wild­flower events.

David Shar­rod, the trust’s chief ex­ec­u­tive, said: “HRH has a won­der­ful af­fil­i­a­tion with this county and his sup­port for wildlife and fauna is greatly ap­pre­ci­ated by us. Know­ing you have the Royal ‘seal of ap­proval’ is re­ally rather spe­cial.”
