" 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. "
Why give to the National Trust?
As a charity, we rely on the generosity of supporters to look after the outdoor spaces in our care. Not only do our supporters help to conserve beautiful landscapes and protect precious plants and wildlife. 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.
