Holidaycottages.co.uk partners with the RSPB

The Travel Chapter’s flagship brand holidaycottages.co.uk has announced an exciting new partnership with the RSPB that will see the company supporting the UK’s largest nature conservation charity during 2020.

Throughout the coming year, this collaboration will help the RSPB protect nature for future generations and support its work on more than 200 nature reserves (home to over 16,000 species) across thousands of acres of land, including the expansion of native woodland. The partnership will see an emphasis on the preservation and regeneration of the UK’s landscapes which serve as havens for wildlife, at the same time as encouraging customers to ‘holiday at home’, enjoy the beauty of their natural surroundings whilst also ensuring that the protection of the planet remains first and foremost in their minds.

Alongside donations made through the partnership, holidaycottages.co.uk will also be supporting the RSPB during the coming year by:

- Promoting the RSPB to its customers and property owners, encouraging both to consider membership and to get involved with local RSPB activities and volunteering

- Promoting the visiting of nature reserves that are in the vicinity of its cottage locations, via pre-holiday information sent to customers booking those properties

- Raising funds through staff charity days

- Providing opportunities for both customers and property owners alike to donate to the RSPB themselves

Holidaycottages.co.uk prides itself on providing a high-quality collection of properties, as well as an unrivalled level of customer and owner service, ensuring that happy memories can be made in some of the most beautiful and best-loved parts of the UK.  This new RSPB partnership is an important element of an overall business initiative both to support conservation and to reduce the company’s eco footprint.

James Starkey, Marketing Director at holidaycottages.co.uk says:
“There has never been a more important time to take action on environmental issues and we are delighted to have the opportunity to partner with the RSPB and support their vital conservation work. We have always encouraged our customers to enjoy the UK’s stunning landscapes and diverse wildlife as part of their holiday experience, and look forward to building on this over the coming year with the RSPB’s help, raising awareness of local nature reserves and ways in which we can all play our part in preserving and regenerating these important landscapes for future generations.”

Welcoming the partnership with holidaycottages.co.uk, Nicky O’Malley, Head of Corporate Partnerships at the RSPB, commented:
“At the RSPB, we are passionate about forging new partnerships that help to inspire people to support the natural world in this time of environmental crisis. Through collaboration we can make a real difference - supporting landscapes and species in serious decline across the UK.”
