Urgent White Cliffs appeal 

The White Cliffs appeal has been successful in helping us secure 700,000 square metres of land immediately behind the clifftop - reaching our target of £1 million in just three weeks. We’ve been overwhelmed by the support and generosity of the public and thank you all. Any future donations will go to restoring the land.
