A HOUSING developer is helping RSPB Old Moor's cause by giving it a £5,000 donation.

Yorkshire's division of Bellway Homes has made the donation which will be used for the wildlife charity's 'Giving Nature a Home' campaign, encouraging the nation to create one million homes for nature in their own gardens and outside spaces.

Craig Hartley, visitor services manager at the RSPB's Old Moor site, said: "Bellway has supported us well over the years and we're delighted they've chosen to support us in this very important campaign.

"It's through this kind of generous donation that we're able to continue delivering the very best for birds and wildlife across the UK."

Paula Murdoch, Bellway's Yorkshire sales manager, said as a home builder it has a responsibility to protect wildlife and the environment surrounding its sites, and offers a helping hand where and when it can.

"We've worked closely with the RSPB over a number of years, most notably when they've relocated animals whose habitat has been affected by building work, and we're delighted to be able to provide this financial support for such an important project," she said.
