Leaving a gift to save our coastline 

Thanks to the amazing generosity of our supporters and 50 years of the Neptune Coastline Campaign, the National Trust manages more than 775 miles of UK coastline. Gifts in wills have been fundamental to our success.

" I have a deep love of the coast. Formby where I'm based means a lot to me, a place where generations of my family have been visiting."
