THE Ross-on-Wye based Marine Conservation Society (MCS) has cemented a long relationship with Cirencester based Turtle Mat Company, by announcing the dirt trapping doormat specialist is to become one of its gold sponsors.
The Turtle Mat Company has had a long affiliation with the only UK charity dedicated to caring for UK seas, shores and wild- life. Over the last few years, with the help of its customers, Turtle Mat has raised over £5,000 for MCS through its Adopt-a-Turtle scheme.
This year, Turtle Mat will not only continue to invest in this specific scheme but work with the charity on other initiatives to help clean up Britain’s beaches and shore lines.
“We are extremely grateful to Turtle Mat for providing us with their additional support,” says Sam Fanshawe, chief executive at MCS.
“We are trying to establish marine protected areas to allow wildlife to continue to flourish and also recover from over fishing and litter.”
Turtle Mat owner Mark Whitney said: “The work MCS does is vital and we want to continue to help in any way we can.”
