The football club will be working with the Wildlife Trust during the 2012-2013 campaign.

Peterborough United Football Club are pleased to announce that the Wildlife Trust Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire have been named as one of charities they will be supporting during the 2012-2013 campaign. 

‘We are very much looking forward to working closely with the Wildlife Trust and helping to promote the work that they do. We are inundated with requests each year, but we felt that they were a worthy cause that needed our support.’

Communications Manager Jeanette Ariano says: 'The Wildlife Trust BCN are thrilled to have been chosen by Peterborough United as one of their charities of the year. Sport and wildlife have much in common - the great outdoors, greenery and a lot of people spectating - that's three for a start! We engage closely with our community, as does your club, and we are really excited at the prospect of spending a wonderful 12 months together.  We look forward to meeting you all.'

The Wildlife Trust works to protect all wildlife over 128 nature reserves - from butterflies to bluebells, birds to bats, and they have more than 800 regular volunteers who help us manage these reserves, monitor wildlife and help out in our offices. The reserves are all free to visit - there could be one very near you. On the Saturday when you can’t follow Posh to an away game, take the family on a wildlife expedition for some bug hunting, insect collecting, pond sweeping and lots more.
