How you have helped

Iconic White Cliffs saved

Our £1.2 million appeal to raise funds to acquire the iconic stretch of the White Cliffs of Dover coastline reached its target in just 133 days, raising an average of £9,000 per day.

We needed the money to buy a 0.8 mile stretch of this world-famous and much-loved piece of the Kent coastline overlooking the port, which completes the missing link of coastline under our care, uniting a stretch of more than 7km (nearly 5 miles) between our visitor centre and South Foreland Lighthouse.

The Wimbury Beehive legacy

Mrs Wimbury's legacy has enabled new beehives to be established at Greys Court and Hughenden Manor, two of her favourite properties she often visited with her husband.

Tyntesfield Chapel Crosses

 With thanks to the Bristol Centre, a local Trust supporter group, and Mr and Mrs White, two crosses have been restored to their former glory at Tyntesfield.

Tarn Hows visitor centre

 On visiting Tarn Hows in the Lake District, Mr and Mrs Parfett decided they wanted to do something to help the area. They worked with us to create a new visitor centre.

Traditional orchards

 Conserving and restoring traditional orchards has become a very real proposition now, thanks to the very generous contributions from donations, legacies and charitable trusts.
