Urgent White Cliffs appeal

The White Cliffs appeal to help us secure the 700,000 square metres of land immediately behind the clifftop has now reached its deadline. We’ve been overwhelmed by the support and generosity of the public since we launched the appeal three weeks ago. Donations are being processed and the overall total will be checked and finalised over the coming days.

We hope to make an announcement next week on the appeal. If you still want to make a donation and it turns out we have hit the target, we will put your donation towards ongoing care

But the White Cliffs of Dover still need your support. Any donations received after we have reached our £1million target, will support the ongoing work to protect this special landscape for generations to come to admire and enjoy.

Why is this land vital?

" Those iconic white cliffs mean a great deal to so many people. Often the first sight of home for our brave boys as they returned from war... It's vital that we do all we can to preserve this important historical site for posterity, so the memory of the past is never forgotten by future generations. "
- Dame Vera Lynn

But they also ensure that future generations have places they can find freedom from everyday life, reconnect with the natural world and make memories to treasure. With your support, we can continue to protect the irreplaceable. For ever, for everyone.
