A Diss conservation charity has been recognised with a national award.
The Little Ouse Headwaters Project (LOHP) was awarded the NGO Impact Award from the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management.
The NGO Impact Award recognises the achievement of non-governmental organisations in delivering a specified initiative, including campaign and projects, that has had a major impact in benefiting nature and society.
The LOHP is a small, volunteer run charity with only one employee and was in competition with much larger organisations such as wildlife trusts.
Chair of the LOHP Bob Hayward said: “We are very pleased that the achievements of the LOHP, and the hard work of all involved in the project, have been recognised with this national award from the ecology profession.”
LOHP works to restore and conserve wildlife along the Little Ouse River on the Norfolk and Suffolk border.
