There are lots of ways you can donate towards the vital work of Durham Wildlife Trust

 

Make a one-off donation

With a little help from you, wildlife can bounce back from the brink of extinction. It is possible to save, enhance and protect Durham’s wildlife but we can’t do it alone.

By donating today, you are helping to care for and protect the amazing wildlife that our region is home to.

Simply fill out the form on our donation page to make a secure online donation, or alternatively give us a call on 0191 584 3112

 

What can you do to commemorate a loved one or celebrate a special event?

Donate in memory of a loved one

Bluebell-filled woodlands, hay meadows brimming with flowers and wonderful wetlands – there’s no better way to remember someone who loved wildlife and loved our local area than to help protect our precious landscapes for the future.

When you make an in-memory donation to Durham Wildlife Trust, you can rest assured that you are making a real difference, helping us look after over 36 reserves, inspire the next generation and stand up for wildlife wherever it’s endangered.

Celebration Plaques

Celebration Plaques are a wonderful way to remember and celebrate the life of a loved one. Alternatively they could commemorate a special family event like the arrival of a new baby, a big birthday or wedding anniversary. Our attractive brass flower plaque is 10cm in diameter and will be engraved with a personalised message. The message will be over three lines with the person’s name in the middle line in larger font. The plaques will be displayed in Low Barns Nature Reserve or Hannah’s Meadow barn. The plaques cost £150 and all the money raised from the purchase of the plaques will go to support our work to conserve wildlife from Tees to Tyne. If you would like to find out more please contact Anne at Durham Wildlife Trust on 0191 518 3112 or by email agladwin@durhamwt.co.uk

 

Donations in lieu of flowers

Traditionally we pay our respects with floral tributes and while cut flowers don’t last very long, wildflowers can last for generations.
A donation in memory of a loved one can help to protect bluebells in local woodlands; wildflowers and butterflies in our meadows; and lapwings and otters in wetlands across our area. By giving a gift in memory you are directly supporting the conservation of local nature reserves and wildlife, keeping places special for future generations.

Plant a tree in our new Rainton Meadows orchard
