Our newest recruit, Natalie, survived a weekend of wilderness on Brownsea Island and raised more than £100 for Dorset Wildlife Trust.
Thirty women jumped at the chance of playing Bear Grylls and making their own shelters, taking part in a nature walk, cooking on camp fires and cutting down rhododendron bushes, which although beautiful, prevent other plants from flourishing on the Island.
Natalie says: “I love a challenge and this was a chance to not only support Dorset Wildlife Trust in their good work but meet fantastic people as well as experiencing something out of my comfort zone.
“I managed to see the infamous three red squirrels that inhabit the Island during the event and will be adopting a squirrel through the charity. I will definitely be writing my name down for other similar adventures in the future.”
