For Ever, For Everyone appeal

By supporting our For Ever, For Everyone appeal, you can help us do something really special – use your gift wherever it’s needed most.

Each year, we look after more than 300 historic properties and manage over 250,000 hectares of beautiful natural spaces, spread right across the country – from crumbling ruins and majestic castles to rugged coast and windswept moors.

Some of these places are in imminent danger. All of them need our care and protection and there isn’t always time or budget available for a specific appeal to fund each one.

A gift to For Ever, For Everyone allows us to have the funds ready, so we can move fast and do whatever we need to do. It also helps us access external funding for a wide range of projects from the Landfill Communities Fund.

It’s not just a gift to one National Trust place – it’s a gift to all of them.

From the smallest, hidden away patch of woodland where butterflies breed, to a big national treasure that might suddenly need extra cash to repair a chimney or restore a garden.

For Ever, For Everyone gifts have supported projects like these:

Castle Drogo
The last castle to be built in England has always suffered from turbulent Dartmoor weather. Thanks to you, we’re installing a new roof membrane to make Castle Drogo watertight. Because the castle was built next to the steep Teign Gorge, erecting the freestanding scaffold around it was a major feat and very costly. We couldn’t have afforded it without you.

Osterley Park
Formerly an overgrown wilderness, the 18th century grandeur of one of the last country parks in London was restored through this six-year project. Gifts like yours will now bring visitors the opportunity to enjoy the herbaceous borders, ancient meadow and thrilling woodland walk, all on a single day out.

Quarry Bank
This significant early cotton mill, estate and gardens, in the heart of the Cheshire countryside, marks the beginning of the industrial revolution and the modern age. The support of people like you means this vital restoration and rejuvenation work will bring to life the experience of living and working through one of the most important periods of our shared history.

Dyrham Park
This 17th-century mansion house near Bath, set in 270 acres of ancient parkland where fallow deer roam free, is currently undergoing a major conservation project to replace the leaking roof and install an energy-efficient biomass boiler. Thanks to supporters like you, the project will allow generations of visitors to discover the House’s fascinating interiors and unique collections of Dutch art and ceramics.

All around the country, National Trust places like these urgently need your support, every day. Please help us continue caring for them, with a gift to the For Ever, For Everyone appeal.
