Husky supports local charities with £25,000 donation

Husky believe it’s important we all take responsibility in giving back to the environment. That is why we have donated a huge £25,000 to The Woodland Trust, the UK’s largest woodland conservation charity and The Leicestershire & Rutland Wildlife Trust, an organisation which works tirelessly to inspire and encourage people to take action for wildlife.

The two charities have split the donation equally, taking a generous £12,500 each to support their worthy causes.

Serge Kremer CEO & owner of Husky, said: “At Husky, we are committed to ensuring all our products are developed to be as energy efficient as possible. Having said that, we realise our products do have an impact on the environment, however small. So we felt it was time to give something back to the environment. As a Lutterworth based company which has been in business for over 25 years, we are proud to support these crucial Leicestershire conservationists who are doing such a fantastic job in maintaining and enhancing the Leicestershire environment for generations to come. ”

With more than 1,000 irreplaceable ancient woods being threatened over the last 10 years, and thousands more dying without much-needed careful restoration, the donation is more important than ever. Contributing towards the help and protection of the area’s environment, woodland, and wildlife.

Simon Bentley, from Leicestershire & Rutland Wildlife Trust, said: “We can’t thank Husky enough. The donation will help us to support our Living Landscapes project which represents a bold vision of restoring, recreating, and reconnecting fragmented habitats to create a resilient and healthy environment, highly valued and accessible for everyone.”

A spokesperson from The Woodland Trust added: “The £12,500 donation will help us to achieve some really ambitious aims for the UK’s woodland including, allowing us to plant native trees and woods, protect ancient woodland and bring precious pieces of natural history back to life.”
