As well as helping in these practical ways, she also raised funds to support the work of Dorset Wildlife Trust.

Natalie Brewer, now a senior account manager at Liz Lean PR said: “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 saw the island’s three red squirrels during the event.”
