Give a Gift Membership to the National Trust
The National Trust has been conserving the nation’s treasures for over a hundred years.
For despite the pandemic, the National Trust continues to strive to protect our natural world, its beauty, our wildlife and history. And even though members of the National Trust can’t always visit places at the moment, memberships are very busy indeed.
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
Members have helped to create the first beaver dam in the UK for 400 years! Well, the beavers have done the work – but members have helped and made a huge difference by enabling the beavers to come back! Find out more about the beavers!
Just see what incredible conservation work is happening at The Argory in Northern Ireland – the work being done is incredibly delicate! It takes hours to do this intricate work – there are lots of pictures of the lampshades being cared for.
Brockhampton in the Herefordshire Hills is blossoming, and National Trust Members are helping to make this happen. The estate is home to about 65 acres of traditional orchards. About 40% of the orchards in Herefordshire have disappeared in the last 100 years, so the National Trust are working with the local community there to restore three lost orchards at Brockhampton. They will be planting hundreds of fruit trees and also turning grazing pasture into lowland wildflower meadows – these will support biodiversity and give people a place to connect with nature.
