James McVey, writer and guitarist in The Vamps has lent his personal support to The Wildlife Trusts’ annual nature challenge in June – 30 Days Wild. 30 Days Wild encourages people to do something wild every day for the month of June. James McVey says: “I’m supporting The Wildlife Trust’s national challenge of spending 30 Days Wild. Every day in June they are asking you guys to do something wild. Now – that could be going camping somewhere if you’ve never been camping, it could be doing an off-road trail, climbing a massive hill that you’ve always wanted to do but never done – but it could also be something as simple as recycling if you’ve never recycled before or buying a reusable water bottle. It doesn’t have to be absolutely crazy – but it’s just a great incentive to get you guys thinking a little bit differently and getting active so make sure you sign-up and get involved!”
