£100,000 BOOST FOR HAWK AND OWL TRUST
Norfolk-based national charity the Hawk and Owl Trust has been given £100,000 towards its Sculthorpe Fen Appeal. The money, from the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), will be used towards developing the new, much enlarged reserve, its facilities and the community engagement elements of the project.
The Hawk and Owl Trust, with its national headquarters at Sculthorpe, is currently raising £850,00 as part of a £1.7m Sculthorpe Fen Appeal to buy additional land on either side of the existing reserve and to be able to extend its wildlife management into this area, and make it fully accessible.
The grant has been awarded through New Anglia LEP’s Growing Places Fund, which provides loan funding to help kick start and support development projects across Suffolk and Norfolk. hawkandowl.org
