Save Our Ponds: Win a wildlife experience

In last week's Welwyn & Hatfield Times, we started the Save Our Ponds campaign, which aims to restore some of the 1,986 ponds around Hertfordshire. And now we need your help. We want readers to raise as much money as possible for the Herts

In last week's Welwyn & Hatfield Times, we started the Save Our Ponds campaign, which aims to restore some of the 1,986 ponds around Hertfordshire.

And now we need your help.

We want readers to raise as much money as possible for the Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust (HMWT), which will go towards reviving and maintaining ponds across all 43 of the trust's nature reserves, as well as creating 50 new habitats by the end of the year.

Ponds support around two thirds of the UK's freshwater plant, invertebrate mammal and amphibian species.

They are also popular feeding and breeding grounds for birds and bats, as well as being important and central features for local communities.

In conjunction with HMWT, we're offering readers the chance to experience some of the county's wildlife up close, through a special tour with an animal expert.

If you raise over �40, you will be automatically entered into a draw for one of these wildlife experiences.

All you need to do is create your very own 'pond bank' by downloading the HMWT image below and wrapping it around the container you choose to collect in.

You can choose either a full colour version, or design the image yourself.

Alternatively, come to the Welwyn & Hatfield Times offices in WGC and pick up a copy of the image.

Once you've collected enough, change up your pennies and send a cheque to the HMWT, or donate online at www.justgiving.com/ponds
