WIN – Bee-autiful necklace and bee charm up for grabs

In celebration of World Bee Day that took place recently, we’ve got a stunning necklace and bee charm in gold, part of their bee-themed accessories to give away, courtesy of Aspinal of London.

The renowned luxury brand has been supporting the South Downs National Park Trust as part of the “Bee Lines” initiative, which is looking to create a network of new wildflower “highways” to help pollinators move through the landscape.

Aspinal of London has produced a stunning bespoke bee-inspired collection – and £5 from the sale of each piece will be donated to the Trust to create new wildflower areas.

Nick Heasman, Countryside and Policy Manager at South Downs National Park Authority, who has been helping to lead the delivery of Bee Lines, said:

“Every pound raised for Bee Lines really does make a difference and we’re delighted that Aspinal of London is launching this new fundraising drive to help pollinators bounce back. So far we’ve been able to create over 60 hectares of lush wildflower habitat and this new funding will help us plant even more. Bees are busy ecosystem engineers and, by pollinating flowers, they create food for other wildlife and, of course, humans. In fact, one out of every three mouthfuls of our food depend on pollinators such as bees, beetles and butterflies.”

We have an exquisite beaded necklace and bee charm to give away for free to a lucky winner.

All new subscribers to the South Downs Trust newsletter during June and July 2024 will go into the prize draw.

Those who are already signed up can answer this question to enter the prize draw:

“Did you know that bees use their legs for more than mobility? Some use them for hearing, grooming and even tasting – but how many legs does a bee have?”

Send the answer by midnight on 31 July to with the subject line Bees. Prizewinners will be picked at random. Good luck!

Although the latest round of Bee Lines funding is now closed, we work with farmers, schools, land owners and other partners to create wildflower corridors across downland, linking species rich chalk grassland to sites which are in need of pollination. Projects taken forward from an expression of interest are developed with specialist advice from the conservation charity Plantlife.
