* BCT set up an award for “Outstanding voluntary contribution to bat conservation” in 2002. Shirley Thompson received the award in 2002 and Jenny Clark in 2003 – they both received a framed picture. Following Pete’s death, the trustees proposed a new award in Pete’s name for outstanding practical contributions to bat conservation as a way of honouring his contribution to bat conservation. They also proposed that a formal trophy be sculptured for this award. This then replaced the award set-up in 2002.
