In 2019 the Society donated a wildlife camera to the Hospice, so that children, parents and visitors can closely monitor the bird life using their garden feeders.
In response to the pressure that many charities are under, a national fundraising campaign has been launched, the 2.6 Challenge on 26th April (the same day that the London Marathon would have taken place). This campaign is supporting all UK charities and the Hospice is asking for support. The idea is to raise money by doing something around 2.6 or 26. Birders could perhaps organise a quiz with 26 bird related questions (pay to enter), bird watch for 26 minutes (ask for sponsorship) or just donate £2.60 or £26! A target of £260 or even £2,600 could be set?
