The support of trusts and foundations, large and small, is vital to our work. With the help of your trust we can:
- save buildings, give them new life and continue to look after them.
- protect important landscapes.
- care for the natural environment and unique, native species of Lundy, a small island in the Bristol Channel.
- preserve traditional building skills.
- implement a programme of educational activities for children.
Trusts and Foundations have recently helped to fund
- the rescue and restoration of a row of fishermen’s cottages in Caithness.
- exceptional work at our existing buildings, such as a new thatch and repairs to an elaborate façade of a building in Penzance.
- a programme to eradicate rhododendron, an invasive plant on Lundy, which is threatening native species.
- our work generally. Some trusts and foundations award grants for us to use where the need is greatest.
