In January 2017 as corporate members SciQuip kindly donated a microscope to Shropshire Wildlife Trust.  The microscope will mainly be used for on-site wildlife projects and will enable them to more reliably identify difficult species such as mosses and lichens, enabling them to more accurately monitor those jewels in the crown of our county’s landscape. 

SciQuip are a leading supplier of scientific & laboratory equipment to research, clinical, academic and manufacturing professionals in the UK and are based in the north Shropshire countryside.  Since becoming corporate members, SciQuip have been extremely supportive of Shropshire Wildlife Trust including helping to set up the Meres & Mosses Business Environment Network.

Matt Brooksbank, SciQuip Managing Director said:

 “It has always been important to us to support our local community, working from such a rural location we are extremely conscious of our corporate responsibility and as the most environmentally sustainable company within our sector we clearly see the importance of supporting the Shropshire Wildlife Trust in protecting our wild areas and its flora and fauna.” 

Tom Hayek, Corporate & Business Development Manager at Shropshire Wildlife Trust said:

“SciQuip have become a really important supporter of Shropshire Wildlife Trust since their first involvement more than 2 years ago.  As well as helping to set up the Meres & Mosses Business Environment Network, they are a really strong advocate within the business community of the work that we do.  The provision of this microscope for our botanical work will allow us to protect both our own nature reserves and the wider landscape from the various threats they are subject to.”
