A CHRISTCHURCH hotel has donated money to the local birdwatching group.

The Captains Club Hotel, which won a gold award in the Green Tourism Business Scheme, presented a cheque for £150 to the Christchurch Harbour Ornithological Group (CHOG).

Robert Wilson, operations director at the hotel said: “With our prime riverside location it is important to us that we operate to environmentally friendly standards.

“We won the Gold Eco Award for significantly reducing our carbon footprint and for our various sustainability practices, including the sale of Eco Water.

“It is proceeds from this that enabled us to make a donation to the ornithological group.”

Christopher Chapleo from CHOG said: “We were delighted that the Captains Club Hotel team have chosen to support our work and are very grateful for their donation.

“We will use the funds to erect a series of nest boxes in some of the mature riverside trees in the Wick area.”
