JT Atkinson, an independent builders' merchant with more than 150 years' experience in the supply of building materials, has partnered with Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust to sponsor the 2019 Flowers of the Dales Festival. 

JT Atkinson is a family owned business based in Cumbria and North Yorkshire. Its partnership with YDMT has helped the business to put something back into this special part of the world. Edwin Atkinson said:

"Through YDMT’s work we can see walls being maintained, wildflower meadows re-established and trees planted in our own community.”

Connecting people and nature

As sponsor of the Flowers of the Dales Festival, which attracts thousands of people to wildflower and nature events every year, JT Atkinson also hope to inspire people to get outside and experience what the Yorkshire Dales has to offer. 

Jamie Atkinson added: 

“We will be promoting Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust to our staff and customers with the hope of helping them to connect further with their local community. As part of this we will also encouraging our staff to volunteer to help with the tree planting and other projects. It’s a great partnership and we’re looking forward to seeing it develop.”

YDMT needs the support of local businesses now more than ever to help us inspire more people to care about the natural world and enjoy the spectacular and precious landscapes of Yorkshire.
