Last chance to vote…

Just a quick email to ask, plead, beg for you to vote for us. Every vote counts in the race to win this high profile award, which would really propel us forwards.

Please, please click on the link below to register your vote for our conservation work.

Can I ask that you also forward this email to family and friends who are likely to be sympathetic (or owe you a favour!) and ask them to do the same.

Thank you so much from everyone at BBCT – your support means a lot and really makes a difference.

Lottery awards final…
The Bumblebee Conservation Trust has reached the televised National Lottery Awards final. Their conservation work to help the UK’s declining bumblebees is on the verge of national recognition. The charity is now one of just three projects competing to win the Best Environment Project category.

Casting your vote is free, takes just a few seconds and just a few clicks of a mouse. It really is very easy – Please help!

Voting closes on the 13th August – don’t leave it too late!
