Help us transform the Peak District and Derbyshire into a pollination hotspot! Our Pollinating the Peak project has been shortlisted to receive £25,000 from the Aviva Community Fund, but we need your help to win.

Pollinating the Peak is an exciting initiative led by the Bumblebee Conservation Trust to protect bumblebees and wild pollinators – including the scarce Bilberry bumblebee – across the Peak District and Derbyshire.

The project has been shortlisted to win £25,000 in the Aviva Community Fund, in an online vote running from 21 October-18 November 2016.

The vote is open to anyone. Please vote for us and share the word - help us make a real difference to our struggling bees and wild pollinators!

Bumblebees are icons of summer and pollinate many of our crops, but over recent decades their populations have crashed with some species already extinct or fighting extinction.

Pollinating the Peak aims to help save the sound of summer by inspiring people and communities to get involved to create bee-friendly habitats, help monitor bumblebees and learn conservation skills. A fun educational programme will involve secondary schools.

The Peak District is one of the few places in the UK where the rare Bilberry bumblebee is found. This under-reported species has an important ecosystem role to play in supporting the Peak District's upland plants.

Partners in Pollinating the Peak are Chatsworth, Chesterfield Borough Council, Derbyshire County Council, Derbyshire Wildlife Trust, Little Green Space, Moors for the Future Partnership, Peak District National Park, and Visit Peak District & Derbyshire.

Aviva Community Fund supports and recognizes important causes in local communities. Everyone can vote and the project with the most votes will be entered into the finals, where a judging panel will award the funds. Everyone registering gets 10 votes to give to one project or to split across various projects.

Please support us - every vote counts!
