We raise money by donations, membership subscriptions, sponsorship and legacies to fund our projects. We are a registered charity so are able to take advantage of Gift Aid and other government assistance to the charity sector.

Support us with a donation

Our projects on the Cotswold Way and other trails depend on the generosity of our members and supporters.  Virgin Money Giving is  our preferred platform for donations because it’s easy to use, secure and has very low handling charges.

We are grateful to everyone and every organisation who support us through donations. To see a list of donors this year click List of donors to 30 Apr 21

Legacy Gifts

There are two main ways you can leave a gift to a charity in a will:

1. A pecuniary gift – when you leave a specific amount of money or asset
2. A residuary gift – when you leave a percentage of your estate.

Residuary gifts are especially helpful because, being a percentage rather than a specific sum, they will benefit from any inflation

Charitable legacies

If you’d like to make a legacy gift, you’ll find more information about the different types and how to make them by clicking on the link below. You’ll see that it’s a simpler process than you might have thought. It’s also relatively straightforward to add  a brief codicil to an existing will making provision for such a legacy.
