Monuments to Freedom appeal 

Your help is needed to protect our great monuments to freedom. We must raise urgent funds for three very special memorial landscapes undergoing major restoration work in the coming months. The Lakes' 14 war memorial summits, Runnymede where Magna Carta was sealed and Wellington Monument all need our support.

Help our ongoing conservation work 

Behind every awe-inspiring lake, beach, castle, garden and art treasure, there's someone special like Lindisfarne's house steward Nick. With your support we can act fast and respond to where the need is greatest and help the vital work people like Nick do. Please give to our general funds appeal.

Request your free will writing appointment  

We’ve teamed up with the National Free Wills Network to give our supporters access to hundreds of solicitors across the country to have a simple will written for free. If you’ve yet to write a will or are thinking about reviewing one, get in touch to arrange your free appointment. Spaces are limited and on a first-come, first-served basis. Whilst there's absolutely no obligation, we hope you’ll consider leaving a gift in your will to the National Trust.
