Trust broadcasts to a new audience

Staffordshire Wildlife Trust is showing off its broad range of work by broadcasting activities and events through a live online video platform.

The charity, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, is working with Aimee Booth, from Stafford, to demonstrate some of its work to a new audience via live streaming video website Twitch.

Aimee, who has thousands of Twitch followers, is working alongside the Trust to show off activities and events throughout the year.

The Twitch presenter has already live streamed alongside Duncan Coleman from the Trust, filming a session where she attempted to carry out basic bushcraft skills such as campfire cooking and basic knife skills.

The Trust is also hoping the livestreaming broadcasts can help to raise more money for its fundraising appeals throughout the year.

Aimee said: “I’m excited about the opportunity to be working with the Trust and spreading the word about the work it does to a brand new audience.

“The Trust carries out a wide variety of work, especially through its People and Engagement programme, so I’m hoping to be able to live stream plenty of sessions throughout the year.

“Twitch is a great way to interact with viewers as it includes a live chat facility, so we can hear from people we perhaps ordinarily wouldn’t do.

“There’ll be lots more streams to come this year so we’re hoping people will keep their eyes peeled to our social media channels for more information.”
