Partnerships & Memberships

When we started the business we were passionate about promoting Yorkshire because we love living here and love the diversity of the landscape and the people. As the business has grown and we have had the opportunity to think about what other factors are important to us as a business we have taken steps to actively support the things we care about.

Find out more about our partnerships and memberships below and why they are important to helping us give back and grow the business, enabling us to support and promote even more local, independent entrepreneurs!

Make it Wild logo

Make It Wild

Make it Wild was started 12 years ago as a family project by the Neave family – Helen, Christopher and their three children. Becoming more aware of the negative impact humans were having on the planet, the family wanted to create more wild spaces to encourage biodiversity and allow nature to flourish. Within their nature reserves they offer a range of activities, volunteering opportunities and also allow businesses and individuals to offset their carbon footprint.

We love what Make it Wild is working to achieve and want to support them in any way we can.
