One of the fundamental objectives of the St. Oswald’s Ultra is to contribute to the conservation and the sustainable development of Northumberland coast and county. In line with this goal, our efforts are focused on three main areas:
This vision is geared towards aiding in the sustainable development of Northumberland’s local communities. That outdoor experience and learning should be a fundamental part of all stages of education. The environment, protection and enjoyment of our wild places can provide a focus for youth, sport and community based activities.
Through connecting with nature and wildlife in outdoor spaces, we can improve the health and well-being of our nation.
St. Oswald’s Ultra share this vision with Northumberland Wildlife Trust and thus are more than happy to support and work in partnership towards promoting and achieving these ideals.
Northumberland Wildlife Trust manage over 60 nature reserves across Northumberland but are not supported by the government and so are reliant upon charitable donations, memberships, grants and local business. Any money received from SOWU runners goes into conservation work in the environment which runners pass through, so they will benefit and all donations are very gratefully received.
