10 MARKET TIMES • OCTOBER 2020 Conservation-minded Cecilia scoops
 NMTF student grant
 LEEDS University student Cecilia Neave, who has dreamt of saving the planet since she was a little girl, is this year’s recipient of the NMTF/Harry Cross student grant.
Cecilia is now in the third year of her degree in Environment and Business.
“I have always loved nature and as a little girl I remember worrying about conservation,” she said.
Her parents, Christopher and Helen Neave, share her values and concerns and left their careers two years ago to start their company “Make it Wild”, creating two nature reserves.
To fund their conservation work they sell eco-friendly products online and on markets in North Yorkshire, including at Coxwold, Hovingham, Ampleforth and Ripon.
Cecilia said: “My aspirations, when I graduate, are to expand Make it Wild further into the international arena, setting up conservation projects across the world.”
Meanwhile it is heads down for her final year.
“I was really pleased when I found out I had been awarded the student grant,” she said. “I don’t think a lot of people realise how many books you have to buy for your degree and how expensive they are. So this grant will help cover that for my final year.”
The student grant is awarded each year to support the university studies of the son or daughter of market traders. It was established in memory of Harry Cross, a much loved and respected market trader.
