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

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
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.
