Never in history have we needed to care for our natural landscapes more. This current world pandemic has helped us rediscover our open spaces, relearning the simple joy of sharing them with family and friends.

YOUR donations will help us:

  • Provide community engagement for all: kids, parents, schools, walkers, dog walkers and their dogs, cyclists and more
  • Do more to protect our landscape, to preserve it for future generations
  • Continue to explore, discover, rescue and repair before our heritage is lost
  • We will report back, and we will celebrate a unique part of Britain!covid
  • Everybody in any part of Britain and the world can get involved - that's our partnership mission
