As well as subscriptions and sponsorship, we raise money to fund our projects by donations and legacy gifts.

Fund a footpath


Click to use MyDonate

How about helping us to restore a portion of trail surface or put in a new way mark post or replace a stile with a gate? Restoring a metre of trail costs about £30, a way mark post about £50 and a kissing gate with inscription plaque about £400. Just press the mydonate  button and tick the appropriate box. If donating for a gate etc, please enter your proposed inscription in the Personalise your donation box. Plaque size is 100 mm x 50 mm (4 inches x 2 inches).  We have chosen MyDonate as our preferred platform for donations because it’s easy to use, secure and has very low handling charges.

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.
