Give a Gift Membership to the National Trust
The National Trust has been conserving the nation’s treasures for over a hundred years. Give a National Trust Gift Membership and you'll help preserve & protect some of the UK's most beautiful & historic places and help in the work the National Trust does, such as preserving ancient trees, or its project to revive traditional orchards across England, preserving historic monuments & places or to work looking after nature & wildlife.
For every roof that’s restored, every acre of land cared for, every time a work of art is conserved, or every orchard that’s brought back to life so that it can blossom again, well, members are part of that and have contributed towards it.
Did you know this about the National Trust?
The Trust and its members cares for
Of course all these things need to be carefully preserved and some need restoring and it’s good that the Trust has experts to do this sensitive and vital work.
So even if you are sitting at home, wishing you could head off to places and explore, members can find joy in the fact that they are making a difference. In fact, every National Trust membership is a lifeline for countryside, coastline, historic sites, green spaces and the people who care for them
Ways membership to the National Trust is helping nature
Bats at Oxburgh Hall, Norfolk
Currently only 14% of England’s river catchments are in good health and the Trust has a Riverlands project to restore them all and bring them back to health. As part of this, work is underway to bring back the clear waters of the Upper Bure, which will reverse the decline in wildlife. It will also connect people to the river and make the landscape more resilient to climate change.
The Lizard Heathlands are being conserved
In Somerset, the pair of beavers who were introduced last year have been busy. For one thing, they’ve had a baby beaver. And for another, they have created a dam complex, made of trees, mud, stones and vegetation. The new wetland habitat is attracting a range of wildlife such as kingfishers, moorhens, dragonflies and bats!
