Butterfly Conservation is the UK charity dedicated to saving butterflies and moths; one of the most threatened groups of wildlife in the UK and valuable indicators of the health of our natural environment.
The charity runs projects to protect more than 100 threatened species and is involved in conserving hundreds of sites and reserves. Its research provides advice on how to conserve and restore habitats.
Dobbies has partnered with Butterfly Conservation to inspire more people to help protect butterflies and moths by creating pollinator-friendly plots in their gardens. View the Nurture for Nature campaign here: www.butterfly-conservation.org/nurturefornature
In 2018, we announced Teenage Cancer Trust as our first ever National Charity Partner, and we are pleased to continue this partnership. To make a donation, please click here
Throughout the year, we host a range of fundraising activities across our stores. From staff partaking in the National Three Peaks Challenge to a number of in-store events.
Around seven young people, aged 13 and 24, are diagnosed with cancer every day in the UK. They need expert treatment and age appropriate nursing support from the moment they hear the word “cancer”. Teenage Cancer Trust is the only charity dedicated to making this happen.
Dobbies has raised over three quarters of a million pounds for Teenage Cancer Trust since the beginning of the partnership.
Growing a partnership to help rebuild lives
Every five minutes, stroke destroys lives. When stroke strikes, part of your brain shuts down. And so does a part of you. But the brain can adapt. The Stroke Association is here to support people to rebuild their lives after stroke. The charity provides specialist support, funds critical research and campaigns to make sure people affected by stroke get the very best care and support to rebuild their lives.
Dobbies is working with the Stroke Association to provide stroke survivors with a range of practical and engaging advice and tips to help people affected by stroke share our joy in gardening. You can enjoy these via the link below.
