Bright Seeds has presented the National Gamekeepers’ Organisation (NGO) with a cheque for £3,853 to help fund the defence and promotion of gamekeeping. The family-run firm, based in Wiltshire, sponsors the NGO and has, for the third year running, raised money by donating £1 for every kilo of Utopia, the popular gamecover crop that it sold.

Chris Bright, Managing Director of Bright Seeds, commented: "Bright Seeds has been a sponsor of the NGO for five years now, and we are thrilled to be able to support the organisation in this way. The work the NGO does is vital to the future of gamekeeping and by extension, conservation of wildlife in this country, and that is something that is very much in line with our principles and ideals here at Bright Seeds. The NGO and its membership are enormously important and we are delighted to continue our working relationship with them.”

Liam Bell, Chairman of the NGO, said: “We are tremendously grateful to Bright Seeds. Their generous sponsorship greatly supports our efforts to secure the future of gamekeeping and the money raised through the sales of Utopia will be put to good use. Bright Seeds produces some really reliable game cover options, and we at the NGO are delighted to have the support of a company that has such a strong ethos when it comes to conservation.”

Utopia, a cross between black mustard and a wild Ethiopian kale, has much to offer shoots of all sizes, from small syndicates to large commercial shoots. Utopia can be planted in June or July at a low seed rate akin to kale, and establishes fast like mustard. It also grows quickly, and gives cover, with large kale-like leaves, by November. It is frost tolerant, and the plant’s very strong stems mean Utopia stands well.
