Wildlife park wants festive waste

Christmas presents
The trust wants to make craft items from wrapping paper

Staff at a wildlife park in Kent have appealed for donations of Christmas waste for educational projects.

The Wildwood Trust wants old wrapping paper and Christmas cards for craft activities at its education centre.

It also wants biscuit tins and clear plastic sweet boxes to use as storage for specimens and artefacts.

Education officer Laura Hester said: "We want people to donate what would normally get thrown away or stored in cupboards never to be used again."

She added: "We can make wonderful craft items for events from wrapping paper and cards and storage boxes are always needed".

The trust has asked for donations to be dropped off at the Wildwood Conservation Park shop near Canterbury.
