Over £600 raised for Red Squirrels!

On Saturday 13th July, wildlife enthusiast Michael Cunningham jumped out of a plane to raise vital funds for the Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales’ Mid Wales Red Squirrel Project.

Mike was committed to raising awareness of our precious native red squirrels, which led to his epic skydive over the Gower. He raised an impressive £619.89 through online donations and through collections at his local Co-op store.


Red Squirrel Officer, Becky Hulme said:

“We are so grateful to Mike for choosing to raise funds for the Mid Wales Red Squirrel Project. He raised an excellent total, which will go towards the cost of trail cameras and training for volunteers, without which our understanding of our native red squirrel would be limited. Thank you Mike!”
