Coast campaign appeal

When you think of something as magnificent and elemental as the coast, it’s difficult to imagine that it is under constant threat. Help us care for your coast, for ever, for everyone

Our coast is at risk

Our members and supporters of the Neptune Coastline Campaign helped us protect the coast for 50 years. But membership fees only cover a third of the cost of caring for this precious landscape – each coastal mile costs £3,000 a year to maintain. Give to our appeal today and make a lasting impact to our great coast.

How the appeal adds up

  • Over the past 50 years, your donations enabled us to buy 574 miles of coastline
  • Today we look after 780 miles of coastline around England, Wales and Northern Ireland
  • Each coastal mile costs £3k a year to maintain

Managing our ever-changing shores

'I'm your coast, look after me'

Why give to the National Trust?

As a charity, we rely on the generosity of supporters to look after the coastline in our care. Not only do our supporters help to conserve wild beaches and protect the precious plants and wildlife that live there. They also ensure that future generations have the chance to witness the might of a stormy sea, explore the secrets of rugged rockpools, dive into stories of the past and make memories to treasure. With your support, we can continue to protect the irreplaceable. For ever, for everyone.
