The Woodland Trust. Click.
In 2012 we raised Money to plant a Jubilee Tree with the Woodland Trust in Leicestershire. In 2012 we also supported the local environment by planting a small Hawthorn hedge in the hope of attracting Sparrows to nest. Please feel free to donate. You can do this by adding a payment to your lessons either in person or through Pay Pal. Please Drive with a conscience for the future of the planet. This is known as Eco driving and your Examiner may talk to you about it at the end of your Practical test.
Royal Society for the Protection of Birds = RSPB Click.
Abacus also follows the wildlife which is helped by the trees by supporting the RSPB. Again please give generously if you can and remember to apply ECO-Driving to your days on the road by changing up your gear as early as possible, keeping reeves to the minimum and slowing down early to save gas and brakes and keeping your tyres pumped up. This will also save your purse.
