Fundraising is essential to Durham Widlife Trust. All money raised goes towards improving wildlife conservation from Tees to Tyne.
There are lots of ways you can get involved.
For all of our events participants we provide a fundraising pack to help you on your way. Most of our organised events include a t-shirt or a medal for participants, so take a minute to check them out!

CAKED because it’s probably muddy, but there’ll definitely be cake at the end!
Join us for our 3km(ish) trail(ish) walk/run/jog/plod of Rainton Meadows Nature Reserve, followed by (you guessed it) cake!
We all need that extra incentive to get out and get fit in the new year, so join us for CAKED, where you’ll have earned your sweet tweet.CAKED 3K
Register your own event with us
Organising a fundraising event gives you the chance to get together with friends, family and your community to help support Durham Wildlife Trust, and is most importantly about having fun, doing something you love (or trying something new!) for a cause you care about.
Let us know what you are thinking of doing by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you over our fundraising pack to help you get started!

We have just launched our new fundraiser for schools
In 2018 we have been fortunate enough to secure £21,250 of funding for a new Education Den on site at Rainton Meadows Nature Reserve. This will be a bespoke learning hideaway that will be able to offer a sensory experience for young people and be a huge improvement on our current classroom space. By using light and sound, the interior of the Wildlife Den will re-create the habitats that the children are going to learn about during their visit. The children will be transported into a different habitat such as exploring woodland floor or diving under water into a pond. They will be able to listen to bird song, insects whirring, mammals calling or underwater creatures communicating.
In order to achieve our aim to build The Den we still need to raise an additional £5,740 funding. This is where your school comes in. We are asking your school to consider Durham Wildlife Trust’s Education Den in your 18-19 academic fundraising calendar.
We will provide e-fundraising packs with ideas and sponsor forms as well as a shout out on our website and social media for schools that get involved. We will also provide a point of contact at Durham Wildlife Trust who will support your fundraising.
Our top 5 fundraising schools will be invited to send representatives to the grand opening of the Den and our top fundraising school will receive a free bespoke education session.
We hope that you will be able to show your support for the future of wildlife and educating future generations about conservation.
