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.

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.
