Join a National Trust Supporter Group and help Greys Court

Visitors on a wildlife walk at a National Trust site

Across the country thousands of our most dedicated supporters meet on a regular basis as part of a National Trust Centre or Association. Made up of National Trust members and volunteer card holders, these groups promote our work within their local area and raise money for conservation and development projects through all kinds of events.

Here our local groups have donated thousands of pounds in recent years to projects such as the restoration of the rose garden wall, which had collapsed after a spell of severe weather. 

As well as playing a vital role in supporting our work, these groups also offer their members the chance to share unique experiences and find out more about our places with like-minded people. Activities typically range from listening to expert talks and attending behind-the-scenes tours to exploring Trust places further afield on day coach trips or a relaxing holiday.

We’d like to say a big thank you to our local groups for their continued support, but would also encourage you to take a look at the groups near you here. Groups welcome new members and would be delighted to share their diary plans with you.

Join a local group and get together with other National Trust members and volunteers. Share experiences including expert talks, relaxing holidays or specially organised events.
