NT Supporter groups at Croome
Interested in making the most of the National Trust near you? Join a local supporter group to enjoy special interest talks, visits, holidays and other social and fundraising events or hands-on conservation activities
As a charity the National Trust relies on the generous support of the public but did you know that as well as supporting us through joining as members, visiting our properties or enjoying our tea rooms, you can also join one of the many regional support groups that exist? Regional support groups have helped National Trust properties up and down the country to fund projects that help move, teach and inspire our visitors, whilst offering their members exciting programmes of events, talks and away trips to other NT properties. Below are a list of our supporters here at Croome.
Join a NT Social group
Getting together with other Trust enthusiasts, members and volunteer card holders who feel passionate about the same things is priceless. Sharing unique experiences and finding out more about the places you care about is what being part of a local National Trust Centre or Association is all about. From listening to expert talks and going on behind-the-scenes tours to taking relaxing holidays, you’ll be part of something amazing. Our Centres and Associations promote our work within their local area and raise money for conservation and development projects through all kinds of events.
Be part of a National Trust volunteer group
If you can see yourself in the great outdoors (or sometimes the great indoors), building, creating and conserving – this could just be the perfect choice for you. As part of a group, you’ll help conserve our special places – both locally and further afield. You might be constructing a footpath, building a fence or helping to restore natural habitats on the coast, but whatever you’re doing, you’ll be in the company of a great bunch of people.
Some of our local supporters groups
The Friends of Croome
The Friends of Croome started in 2004, to promote the work of the National Trust, encourage knowledge and better understanding of Croome and to initiate social activities and fund-raising. Funds raised through our activities go towards supporting projects at Croome.
Membership is diverse including those who simply love Croome, families whose forebears worked on the Croome Estate and National Trust volunteers involved in all aspects of the everyday running of Croome and with planning for its future.
By becoming a Friend of Croome, your enjoyment of Croome will be enhanced by a feeling of belonging and involvement and by the enthusiasm of fellow members.
The Worcester Malvern Association
Formed in 1971, the Worcester / Malvern Centre is one of about 200 such groups in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The aims of these Supporter Groups are to promote the work, policies and membership of the National Trust and to allow members to share their interest with like-minded people in their area. Through an organised programme of talks, outings, holidays and social activities, members make friends, learn more about National Trust and its work and, in so doing, raise funds to support projects at properties in its care.
The Cheltenham and Gloucestershire National Trust Centre
A voluntary association of National Trust Members founded in 1964 to promote the work of the National Trust.
Interested in making the most of your National Trust membership whilst meeting new friends? Join the Cheltenham and Gloucestershire National Trust Centre to enjoy special interest talks, walks, visits, holidays and other social and fundraising events or hands-on conservation activities.
Our Centre promotes the work of the National Trust locally and raises money for conservation and development projects at the same time as being in the company of like-minded people.
Benefits of being involved include experiences that 'move, teach and inspire‘
