Appeals

We depend on your donations to help us carry out our vital conservation work and to respond to urgent restoration needs. Thank you for your support

Here’s a selection of current appeals for fundraising projects at our places. Some support the National Trust’s more pressing needs in the wider areas of coast and countryside conservation, others focus on the urgent restoration needs of individual buildings, collections and gardens in our care.

Monuments to Freedom appeal 

Your help is needed to protect our great monuments to freedom. We must raise urgent funds for three very special memorial landscapes undergoing major restoration work in the coming months. The Lakes' 14 war memorial summits, Runnymede where Magna Carta was sealed and Wellington Monument all need our support.
