THE founder of the organisation pledged to protect Isle of Wight red squirrels has received a top award.
Helen Butler, who runs the Wight Squirrel Project, was made volunteer of the year by the Red Squirrel Survival Trust (RSST) in recognition of outstanding service to red squirrel conservation in the UK.
Helen said: "I was honoured to receive the award from the Duke of Northumberland and RSST chairman Miles Barnes at
Alnwick Castle in Northumberland."
She received a certificate signed by the Prince of Wales and Miles Barnes and a copper cast squirrel by Kirsty Armstrong.
"It was a very nice award to bring back to the Isle of Wight. We also had a guided tour of the castle and refreshments," said Helen.
