Monies raised through this initiative will be put towards EOCA’s conservation projects over the coming year. Some of the money may also be used to help cover EOCA’s core costs, if they are not covered through other funding streams, which indirectly supports the funding of the organisation’s conservation work.

The funding that EOCA and Original Buff, S.A. have given Ennerdale's Squirrel Woodlands has enabled us to make a massive step change in our conservation of red squirrels, allowing us to purchase equipment, employ local people and support the local community in extending native woodlands and helping keep red squirrels in the valley. The simple funding process has meant we can focus on doing real tangible stuff on the ground"
