About Friends of the Bees
Friends of the Bees is a non-profit Community Interest Company, run entirely by unpaid volunteers. All our income is used to fund projects designed to improve conditions for pollinators, with a special emphasis on bees - and not just honeybees, but all pollinator species indigenous to the British Isles.
Our low overheads mean that we can make best use of our income, which is currently entirely from donations.
