During his spare time, 12-year-old Liam has been turning his hand to making bird boxes in order to raise much-needed funds for a women’s centre on the Isle of Wight.

Liam has decided to make bird boxes to order in return for a donation to Wight DASH (what’s this?).

New homes for wildlife
Liam is following guidance via the RSPB Website to ensure his bird boxes are the right size. He’s chosen one that can be occupied by house sparrows, blue tits and other wildlife.

As Liam has been asking Island companies to donate spare wood and other materials, he’s ensuring that 100% of the proceeds go to the charity.

Nice one Liam! Raising money for such a worthwhile charity and helping nature at the same time is a really thoughtful and kind thing to do.


Well done Liam – great idea !


Dad needs to swot-up on what safety measures Liam should be taking when using a sharp tool just millimetres away from his son’s hand…..PPE and all that.
