In celebration gifts 

It’s the memorable moments that make us, so for life’s biggest milestones, give a gift that lasts forever, whether that’s a donation, planting a tree or a physical dedication.

Plant a Tree

Over 125 years ago we set out to open up the natural world so everyone could explore vibrant green spaces like parks, woodlands and the countryside. Trees breathe life into our world, and it's vital we plan for the future of woodlands so we can tackle climate change, together.

Plant a Tree 

Trees provide vital habitats for a range of wildlife and are one of the best natural defences against climate change. This is why we're aiming to plant and establish 20 million trees by 2030. Donate to Plant a Tree and make a difference.


Help us care for the coast, make space for wildlife or restore historic buildings. Whatever is most important to you, discover an appeal close to your heart and help make a difference.

Fix The Fells Appeal 

The Lake District is a popular place to visit, but this means the footpaths become eroded which, along with weather events and climate change means the fells are in need of repair. Money from this appeal will directly improve this unique UNESCO World Heritage landscape.
