Over £750 donated to preserving Thurstaston Common by generous Wirral public

The Wirral public have donated generously and have made a big contribution towards the ongoing preservation of Thurstaston Common.

Last year in June, Karl Tatler Estate Agents & Lettings and The National Trust partnered to help protect one of Wirral’s most iconic wild places.

To raise funds, Karl Tatler Estate Agents & Lettings have been collecting £1 donations for the environmentally friendly Karl Tatler Bag for Life. In 18 months, the £750 barrier has been smashed with an outstanding £752 raised in donations since June 2016.

The generous donations of the Wirral public with the Karl Tatler bag for life scheme have helped create new paths through particularly boggy areas of Thurstaston Common, and a new 30 metre section of all-weather disabled access path, as Phil Neagle, National Trust Ranger, explains. “The Karl Tatler bag for life campaign and the generosity of the people of Wirral people has made a real difference on the ground at Thurstaston.” 

“Donations have enabled us to purchase materials and stone to extend our all-weather access path and hopefully, with continued support, we will complete a circular route which can be accessed by mobility scooters, electric wheelchairs and buggies. We have had a really positive response to our work and when out on site installing the new path barely a person passes without commenting on how we are doing such a wonderful job. This is a great boost for our volunteers who are working hard to accomplish the task.”

Karl Tatler added: “We are delighted, though not surprised, by the generosity of the Wirral public with our bag for life donations. To make such a tangible difference to the preservation of the Thurstaston Common heathlands, and to make it more accessible to so many people, is very rewarding.”

“To have raised over £750 is just fantastic, and the good people of Wirral can be very proud of the positive difference they are making to Thurstaston Common. Thank you.”

To pick up your own Karl Tatler bag for life simply call in to your local Karl Tatler branch, make a donation and collect your environmentally friendly Karl Tatler bag for life. Every £1 raised enables approximately five centimetres of path to be created – it would be wonderful to raise enough money to continue to extend and improve the path network at Thurstaston Common.
