Exeter Airport backs Offwell trust

Part of car park revenue given to woodland and wildlife charity.

OFFWELL Woodland and Wildlife Trust is benefiting from car park bookings at Exeter Airport and is now able to better support a wide variety of Devon’s wildlife at risk.

The trust has been given nearly �4,000, following a commitment from the airport to donate �1 for each of this summer’s official online car park bookings.

Dougal Syers, representing the 50 acre site, attended the airport with trustee David Tilbury and his wife Rosemary and received a cheque for �3,913 from managing director Jamie Christon.

Mr Christon said: “The Trust is a very worthy recipient of money raised between April and August.
