Small homewares and gifts company Creature Candy join the effort to save much-loved Scottish Seabird Centre
Creature Candy has agreed to help raise money for the Scottish Seabird Centre through the sale of limited edition puffin prints, as they suffer from financial difficulties due to COVID-19.
In order to avoid permanent closure, the Scottish Seabird Centre has set an overall fundraising target of £200,000. In the 20 years that the conservation charity has been operating, they have used their resources to educate people about the Scottish marine environment and to support conservation projects.
Creature Candy wants to do its bit to ensure the centre can continue their important work. “Creature Candy are proud to support a number of wildlife charities and important conservation projects,” said Lizzie Barker, founder and director of Creature Candy. “The Scottish Seabird Centre provides a wonderful environment for the public to enjoy and learn about seabirds and other marine animals. It also plays an important role in the conservation and protection of some of the most fragile habitats on the planet. Its survival is imperative and we sincerely hope we can help to make this happen.”
Creature Candy launched a four-week campaign via Crowdfunder to sell limited edition puffin art prints. The prints will cost £15 each, with £5 from each print sold going to the Seabird Centre.
