Shelby is marking its fifth anniversary with a pledge of support to an environmental charity. Shelby has sponsored the planting of 50 native broadleaf trees within the Yorkshire Dales. The construction consultancy is backing the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust’s (YDMT) Together for Trees campaign to officially mark five years in business this month. Shelby, which has one of its offices in Leeds, has also committed to support the Trust in the future.
Shelby’s managing director Steve Tighe said: “Shelby is pleased to be partnering with the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust. After five years of growing our business, we are keen to back environmental drives which benefit the communities we live and work within and supporting the planting of new trees is a great way to kick-start this. It also seems an apt way to celebrate Shelby’s fifth birthday as wood is the traditional anniversary gift.
“Our team works nationally, but our two main offices are based within the north of England, so we feel compelled to support tree planting within this area.”
The YDMT has helped to deliver projects worth around £28 million in the Yorkshire Dales and surrounding areas, which include restoring woodlands and wildlife habitats, countryside apprenticeships and supporting local communities.
Michael Devlin, Deputy CEO at YDMT, said: “Through our Together for Trees campaign we are working with many supporters and partners, such as Shelby, to plant 100,000 additional trees across the region. Trees are hugely valuable as a habitat for wildlife supporting some of our most endangered woodland animals, like red squirrels, dormice and cuckoos.
“They are also important for our mental health and well-being and we believe that everyone should have access to them. The appeal aims to raise funds to create beautiful woodlands that everyone can enjoy for years to come.
“We’re really excited to welcome Shelby as one of our charity partners and we’ll be excited to welcome them to the woodlands they’re supporting later in the year.”
