This year the group are supporting The RSPB’s Giving Nature a Home campaign. As well as raising money that can be used to improve habitats and opportunities for nature right across the country we have also set ourselves a target of providing an incredible 500 new homes for wildlife locally! We want to help make sure there is always a place nature can call home here, on our doorstep, in Macclesfield and EastCheshire.

At The Nature Needs You event visitors have created a fantastic total of 80 new wildlife homes.
